ENGLAND v SWITZERLAND
England’s road to the World Cup begins NOW! Literally every touch matters as these Three Lions wanabees look to impress Gareth Southgate enough to keep their place in the side. There’s so much competition for places in the squad, one below-par performance could be the difference between earning their seat on the plane to Qatar later this year or not. Who’s going to make it count?
England and Switzerland both qualified for this year’s World Cup as winners of their qualifying group, so they’ll be confident ahead of this clash at Wembley! The Swiss side actually stole top spot from European champions Italy, which was one of the biggest shocks of the qualifying campaign, so this won’t be easy!
England do have a far superior record in head-to-heads, winning 18 of their 26 all-time meetings! The Three Lions are on a 12-game unbeaten run v the Swiss, a run which dates back to the 1980s!
