Germany got their Euro 2008 preparations back on track with an emphatic 4-0 win over tournament co-hosts Switzerland.

Two goals from Mario Gomez in between strikes from Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski secured a comfortable win for Joachim Low's side.

Klose put Germany ahead in the 23rd minute when a Gomez pass squirmed beneath Swiss keeper Diego Benaglio, allowing the Bayern Munich striker to tap in his 38th international goal.

Gomez made sure of victory with two clinical second-half strikes in the space of six minutes, before substitute Podolski compounded Switzerland's misery after beating the offside trap in the 89th minute.
