BASEL, Switzerland - Switzerland booked its place at Euro 2024 with a 1-1 home draw against Kosovo in European qualifying Group I on Saturday.
Kosovo was under pressure for most of the first half but the Swiss only broke the deadlock two minutes after the break through a Ruben Vargas header, before Muhamet Hyseni leveled for Kosovo eight minutes from time.
Switzerland, who is second with 17 points, secured a top-two finish to seal its third successive appearance at the Euro finals and sixth overall.
The team plays its final game on Tuesday against group leaders Romania — who is on 19 points and also sealed qualification with a 2-1 win over Israel — to decide top spot.
