A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

Switzerland 2, Togo 0

Alexander Frei exploits some poor defending at the other end to put Switzerland ahead on 16 minutes

Switzerland stepped up their bid for a place in the knock-out stages and ended Togo's campaign thanks to goals from Alexander Frei and Tranquillo Barnetta.

Rennes striker Frei neatly stabbed home the unmarked Barnetta's cross from close-range after 17 minutes.

Togo were denied a decent penalty claim when Emmanuel Adebayor was chopped down and Mohammed Kader twice went close.

But despite a sustained spell of Togo pressure, Barnetta rifled in late on to send the World Cup debutants home.

After the 2-1 defeat to South Korea in their first match, the African side needed to avoid defeat in Dortmund to stand any chance of getting out of the group.
