Frei: Wrapped up the win
Euro 2008 co-hosts Switzerland defeated Slovakia 2-0 on Saturday as part of their preparation for the forthcoming finals.
Valon Behrami and Alex Frei were on target for the Swiss to end a run of four successive losses.
Behrami broke the deadlock on 56 minutes, pouncing from close range after Slovakian keeper Jan Mucha could only parry.
The Lazio player turned provider seven minutes later as Frei netted to take him within one strike of Kubilay Turkyilmaz's all-time Swiss record of 34 goals.
Patrick Mueller, who walked out on Lyon's French Cup final to try to secure a place in Switzerland's Euro 2008 squad, looked solid in central defence, helping the Swiss to their first clean sheet since March 2007.
