Xherdan Shaqiri scored a hat-trick as Switzerland recorded the victory they needed against Honduras to leapfrog Ecuador in Group E and reach the last 16 of the FIFA World Cup.

The result − coupled with Ecuador's 0-0 draw against section winners France − means outgoing coach Ottmar Hitzfeld can start planning for a knockout date with Argentina on Tuesday. Four years after these sides could not be separated in their final group game in South Africa, an outcome that eliminated both teams, Shaqiri ensured there would be no repeat with the 50th treble in World Cup finals history.

    Switzerland are through to the last 16 for the third time in their last five World Cup finals campaigns. Xherdan Shaqiri was the match winner with a magnificent hat-trick, two of the goals being set up by the excellent Josip Drmic. Honduras improved in the second period, having an effort cleared off the goal line, but were always up against it following Shaqiri's first-half double. Switzerland play Argentina on Tuesday.
