Switzerland vs England Match Preview
Another chance to lift silverware has passed England by, but they are fancied to go one better than at last year’s World Cup by finishing third in the UEFA Nations League.
It’s a second consecutive third place play-off for the Three Lions after a semi-final defeat which will have been nowhere near as painful as the one to Croatia last July, when they then also lost to Belgium to miss out on the bronze medal.
This time it was the Netherlands who got the better of Gareth Southgate’s side in extra time, the circumstances of the game being similar to the Croatia one. Again England took the lead, this time from a penalty, before their opponents made it 1-1 at the end of normal time.
Southgate will want the sloppy defensive errors that caused the two extra-time goals his team conceded against the Dutch to be eradicated, but insists that playing the ball out from the back, as per the modern football style, is what he wants.
Switzerland, meanwhile, looked a generally more dangerous side than hosts Portugal in their semi-final but had no answer to the individual brilliance of hat-trick hero Cristiano Ronaldo, who essentially single-handedly hauled his compatriots into the showdown for the trophy.
England have an excellent record against the Swiss (see stats above) and although Xherdan Shaqiri, who has sat on Liverpool’s bench for much of the season, showed his freshness with an excellent display against Portugal, we will back Southgate’s men to win in normal time.
