Northern Ireland player ratings

Michael McGovern: Made two big first-half stops that kept his team in the game. 7 (out of 10).

Aaron Hughes: Now the home nations' most-capped defender and this was a composed performance in what may be his final international. 7

Gareth McAuley: Another who may now call it a day. Thrown on up front late on but did his best work defensively. 8

Jonny Evans: So nearly got justice for his brother Corry with a late header that was cleared off the line. 8

Chris Brunt: Tested Yann Sommer with two first-half attempts. Needed to conjure up more with a free-kick on the stroke of half-time. 7

Steven Davis: Was brilliant in midfield, never looks rushed. 8

Oliver Norwood: Did the dirty work and kept it simple while his central-midfield colleagues kept Northern Ireland ticking. 7

George Saville: Was tremendous in his first start in international football. Northern Ireland have to now build around him and Davis. 9

Jamie Ward: One of those who came in, his energy and drive were a big part of why Northern Ireland improved. 8

Conor Washington: Like Ward, his constant running transformed Northern Ireland and he almost headed his country back into the tie. 7

Stuart Dallas: Showed no ill effects of the injury that put him in doubt for this game - one of the best players on the pitch. 8.

Substitutes

Josh Magennis (on for Ward, 75): Brought on to give Northern Ireland a more physical presence but Switzerland's centre-backs handled him well. 6

Jordan Jones (on for Norwood, 75): International debutant had no fear running at Juventus' Stephan Lichtsteiner when he came on. 7

Paddy McNair (on for Washington, 82): There was confusion about his position and the game bypassed him somewhat as Northern Ireland went direct. 6
