Carbon-copy goals from Fabian Schär at the start of each half defeated Norway 2-0 in Oslo as Switzerland all but booked a FIFA World Cup spot.

The FC Basel 1893 centre-back broke the deadlock after 12 minutes, winning an aerial duel with Espen Ruud to head in a Gökhan Inler free-kick from the left. Six minutes into the second period lightning struck twice, Schär scoring in almost identical fashion to end Norway's hopes and leave Switzerland on the verge of a place in South Africa.
