Hitzfeld: We must beat Wales
The Swiss lost their second straight qualifying match yesterday, going down 1-0 in Montenegro, meaning Tuesday's clash with the Welsh is now a crucial one.
"We must not lose our nerve," said Hitzfeld. "We desperately need a win so that we can release the tension and we have got to beat Wales on Tuesday to start our recovery."
Defeats to England and Montenegro have left the Swiss at the bottom of qualifying Group G, but Hitzfeld does not expect the Montenegrins to carry on their current charge which has seen them win three games by the same 1-0 scoreline.
