The 19-year-old - who made his full debut against France in March - came on after 77 minutes of Switzerland's 3-1 win against the Faroe Islands.
With the Republic of Ireland and previous leaders Israel drawing 2-2 and France not in action, Switzerland moved to the top of Group Four. All four teams remain unbeaten.
Erik Edman played the full 90 minutes as Sweden hit Malta for six - the Swedes 6-0 win keeps them within a point of leaders Croatia in Group Eight.
In African qualifying, Noureddine Naybet was on the bench as Morocco beat Malawi 4-1 in Group Five. They now top the group.
In the UEFA Under-21 Championship qualifying, Marton Fulop's Hungary beat Emil Hallfredsson's Iceland to maintain their hopes in Group Eight.
Hungary won 1-0 although Emil set up a great chance that Iceland failed to take in the final minute. Hungary can still go through but Iceland's hopes are all-but over.
Reto Ziegler earned another full cap as Switzerland jumped to the top of World Cup qualifying Group Four on Saturday.
