Switzerland got their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign off to a successful start with a 2-0 Group E win against Slovenia in Ljubljana.

Granit Xhaka's first-half strike and Gökhan Inler's effort six minutes after the restart helped the visitors to a convincing victory in a match which never looked like ending any other way for Ottmar Hitzfeld's side.
