Pascal Zuberbühler gets the nod for Köbi Kuhn's last match in charge
With nothing at stake it wasn't surprising that goals were not a major
feature in Basle.
The Austrian referee had plenty of fun with his whistle though;
blowing up for some 26 fouls.
Pascal Zuberbühler denied Pepe his second goal of the tournament and
Ricardo tipped over from Johan Vonlanthen.
Half-time - 0:0
Hakan Yakin scored his second tournament goal for Switzerland and
doubled the lead thirteen minutes later.
