Granit Xhaka's goal 16 minutes from time ensured Switzerland ended FIFA World Cup qualifying Group E seven points clear at the top – and dashed Slovenia's play-off hopes.

At kick-off, Slovenia sat only a point behind second-placed Iceland, who were held 1-1 in Norway. Therefore a Slovenia win would have booked a play-off berth but instead they were to be beaten in Berne.
