- Switzerland Women 2-1 Wales Women
- Humm and Bachmann send Switzerland to World Cup
Wales’s hopes of reaching the World Cup finals and a first major tournament ended in heartbreak as Switzerland prevailed from this barmy playoff tie, the wily substitute Fabienne Humm flicking in a deft winner as the second half of extra time ticked into stoppage time.
A topsy-turvy contest was heading for a penalty shootout after the excellent Ramona Bachmann, who was forced off late on through injury, cancelled out Rhiannon Roberts’s opener.
