Xherdan Shaqiri and Gökhan Inler were both on target as Switzerland beat Albania 2-0 to move to the top of World Cup qualifying Group E.

Bayern Munich midfielder Shaqiri opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, slipping past three Albania defenders before finishing with a low shot.

On a wet night in Lucerne, Inler sealed the three points with a well-struck penalty in the 68th.

The victory came on the heels of Friday’s 2-0 victory in Slovenia.
