Switzerland were reduced to ten men after 54 minutes when former Reto Ziegler was shown a straight red for having his studs raised in a tackle on Chris Gunter, and a foul on the same player by Timm Klose six minutes later allowed Ramsey to slot his fifth international goal from the penalty spot.

Bale then made the win safe as he raced on to a Steve Morison pass to beat Diego Benaglio.
