England vs Switzerland latest prediction

This was so close to being Slovakia vs Switzerland, and it would have been deserved. But England somehow found the goals they needed to keep their Euro 2024 run going. The Three Lions entered Euro 2024 as slight favourites ahead of France, but they certainly haven’t played that way. In 90 minutes, England have won just one and drawn three of their four matches so far.

That victory came in their opening game, and even that was laborious. Jude Bellingham‘s first-half goal against Serbia was enough to secure the win, but England were holding on, with Southgate sitting back to protect the lead. That has been the story of England’s tournament and it proved costly in their second game as they conceded an equaliser to Denmark. In the last 16, England needed a 95th-minute equaliser from Jude Bellingham to take their tie with Slovakia to extra-time, where Harry Kane netted the winner.

Switzerland were a lot more convincing in their last 16 win and have generally been good during the tournament as a whole. Like England, Switzerland ended their group on five points, winning their opening game against Hungary before drawing with Scotland and Germany.

In their final draw against Germany, Switzerland were just a few minutes away from winning and topping the group, before conceding an equaliser to settle for second. That set them up with a last 16 tie against Italy, and Switzerland were on top form, well worth their 2-0 win against the defending champions.

England take on Switzerland in their Euro 2024 quarter-final at 5pm on Saturday 6th July at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf.

Gareth Southgate’s men are in the quarter-finals of a major tournament for the fourth time in a row, their best such run. England have also progressed from two of their four quarter-final matches in European Championship history, with three going all the way to penalties. The Three Lions have a good record against Switzerland too, losing just one of their last 24 meetings.

England latest team news

  • Pickford; Walker, Stones, Konsa; Trippier, Mainoo, Rice, Saka; Foden, Bellingham; Kane

England have named their starting XI but it is unclear how they will set up. There is only one change, with Ezri Konsa replacing the suspended Marc Guehi.

This could mean Southgate has decided to move to a back three. If so, Konsa would join John Stones and Kyle Walker as the three centre-backs, with Kieran Trippier at right-wing-back and Bukayo Saka on the left.

Further up the pitch, Bellingham and Foden would play just behind Harry Kane in more central roles.

It is still possible England play in a 4-2-3-1, with Konsa in at centre-back and Trippier continuing on the left.

The big pre-match news was that Bellingham is free to play, after Uefa confirmed his punishment for a lewd gesture made toward the Slovakia bench in the round-of-16 match.

European football’s governing body confirmed the midfielder has been fined £25,000 and given a suspended one-game ban, explaining that “said suspension is not immediately enforced and is subject to a probationary period of one year, starting from the date of the present decision.”

Switzerland latest team news

  • Sommer; Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Ndoye, Freuler, Xhaka, Aebischer, Rieder, Vargas; Embolo

Switzerland will welcome Silvan Widmer back into the squad after suspension but have made no changes to their starting XI from the Round of 16. Against Italy, Vargas played further forward with Dan Ndoye dropping to wing-back.

England vs Switzerland head-to-head

England are unbeaten in their past 13 games against Switzerland since losing 2-1 in qualifying for the 1982 World Cup. The Three Lions have won nine of those games, as well as one penalty shootout victory in the third-placed play-off at the 2019 UEFA Nations League finals.
