Ex-Rangers striker Cedric Itten follows up firing Young Boys to the Champions League by helping Switzerland edge closer to the Euros.
Ced the Ted was on target for the Swiss as they dumped Andorra 3-0 on home soil with the striker scoring just after half-time to settle his team’s nerves.
The Cedric Itten goal would then be added to late on as Switzerland star Granit Xhaka added a second and Xherdan Shaqiri completed the scoring from the penalty spot.
The goal was Cedric Itten’s fifth in eleven caps for Switzerland with the country now top of Group I after six games, two points in front of Romania and three ahead of Israel.
Cedric Itten resurgent in Switzerland
With Cedric Itten now setting his attentions on Euro 2024 in Germany, Rangers fans will be left scratching their heads with the Young Boys forward.

Signed in the summer of 2021 after an explosive season at FC St Gallen, the Covid pandemic prevented the big man from settling despite playing a key role in the title winning season.
The next campaign the striker was farmed out to Greuther Furth in the Bundesliga but was recalled during the reign of Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
Failing to inspire, Rangers suffered an injury crisis in attack at the end of that season and the same crisis of confidence which crippled his time in Glasgow once again held him back.
Heading to Young Boys in the summer of last season in a reported £1.5m deal, back in the comfort of Switzerland Cedric Itten has fired his side to the Swiss Super League title and now the Champions League.
Now firmly in the reckoning for his national side – and back amongst the goals – the forward could soon be firing his country to Euro 2024 too.
With Rangers a couple of bad results away from sacking the manager, and the club having let Celtic romped to a treble last season, the question is, who’s had a better few years?
