Despite having a wealth of chances, Switzerland were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw in their FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E game against Norway.

Mario Gavranović looked to have earned the Swiss their third straight win when he struck with 11 minutes left, but Norway were swift to equalise through captain Brede Hangeland. The result leaves Switzerland top of the section on seven points, with Norway three behind in third.
