The Swiss Football Association have confirmed that Lazio boss Vladimir Petkovic will succeed Ottmar Hitzfeld after the World Cup.
The 50-year-old, who is expected to be axed by Lazio over the next 24 hours, has put pen to paper on a contract with the national side.
Petkovic has been handed a contract from July 2014 until the end of 2015. That deal will be extended if he gets the country to Euro 2016.
