SWITZERLAND RAN OUT 2-0 winners against the Republic of Ireland in tonight’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Geneva.

The hosts went in front in the 16th minute thanks to a strike from just outside the box by Haris Seferovic, which Ireland goalkeeper Darren Randolph was unable to keep out.

Ireland had captain Seamus Coleman sent off for a hand-ball in the 76th minute, but Darren Randolph kept the visitors in the game by saving the resultant penalty from Ricardo Rodriguez.
