Three days after conceding a last-gasp equaliser to Spain, Germany were denied UEFA Nations League Group A4 victory again by Switzerland's Silvan Widmer.

Switzerland vs Germany: as it happened


Match in brief

Germany’s wait for a first UEFA Nations League win goes on after they were pegged back by a hard-working Switzerland side.

Ilkay Gündoğan’s precise finish gave the visitors an early lead, but they failed to build on it, although Timo Werner should have done better with one chance. At the other end, Haris Seferović hit the outside of the post, while Bernd Leno denied Arsenal team-mate Granit Xhaka more than once. The pick of the German goalkeeper's saves was from a late free-kick by the Switzerland skipper, but by then he had already been beaten when Widmer swept home. Germany are now third, two points behind leaders Spain but one ahead of Switzerland.
