Match Preview

A late capitulation saw Switzerland concede two goals after the 87th minute and succumb to a 3-1 semi-final defeat to Portugal, leaving the Swiss with a strong sense of déjà vu. They conceded three goals in the final ten minutes of their latest Euro qualification fixture (3-3 vs Denmark), and have now seen eight match goals scored after the 75th minute across their last four games (W2, D1, L1).
Although they’ll be disappointed to be contesting third place, Switzerland cannot be regarded as dull considering six of their last seven competitive matches have ended with over 2.5 goals (W4, D1, L2). However that’s not been the case in the last three H2Hs against England, all of which Switzerland lost ‘to nil’.
It took until extra-time for the Netherlands to fight off the ‘Three Lions’, scoring two extra-time goals to end England’s five-game winning run. Still, an average of 3.17 goals per match across their last six games is indicative of England’s threat upfront – a much-needed clinical edge considering England’s defence failed to keep a clean sheet in four of those matches.
Notably, England led at half-time in their semi-final, and were leading at the break in four of their last five victories. However don’t expect them to give up if they concede the opener – the last two competitive matches in which they’ve done so, they won.
Players to watch: Switzerland have won the 12 games Haris Seferović has scored in, whilst Raheem Sterling has netted all eight of his international goals in competitive matches – England won all five games he scored in.
Stat attack: The opener was scored within 30 minutes in three of Switzerland’s last four games.
England have been shown an average of 1.6 yellow cards per fixture across their last five competitive matches.
Switzerland last beat England in 1981 (D2, L6 since).
