Hakan Yakin´s slick second-half double gave Switzerland coach Kobi Kuhn a victorious send-off as the co-hosts bowed out of Euro 2008 with a 2-0 win from their final match against a much-changed Portugal side.

The Young Boys midfielder, who also netted his team´s only other goal of the tournament in Wednesday´s 2-1 defeat to Turkey, struck 19 minutes from time and then again from the penalty spot 11 minutes later to secure the triumph.

The Portuguese may count themselves a little unfortunate, having hit the woodwork through both Pepe and Ricardo Quaresma, although Gokhan Inler was also denied by the frame of the goal for the Swiss.
