BY foxsports • October 11, 2008

Striker Blaise Nkufo scored with a 72nd-minute header to give Switzerland a 2-1 victory over Latvia in a World Cup qualifier Saturday.

The goal, from a free kick by Swiss captain Alex Frei, redeemed Nkufo a minute after he failed in his marking duties at another free kick to prevent Deniss Ivanovs heading an equalizing goal for 10-man Latvia.
