England vs Switzerland

England-vs-Switzerland-euro2024England face Switzerland at the Merkur Spiel Arena in Düsseldorf on Saturday for their Euro 2024 quarter-final clash. It’s not been a perfect tournament for England despite being unbeaten so far. Manager Gareth Southgate has come in for some hefty criticism, as the performances of the Three Lions have failed to impress fans. It took a very late Jude Bellingham equaliser to take their last 16 tie with Slovakia into extra time, and a Harry Kane strike in the additional 30 minutes was enough to see England progress. They’ll need to put in a much better performance here.

Switzerland impressed as they finished second in Group A behind hosts Germany. They, too, are unbeaten in the tournament so far but, like England, have drawn more games than they’ve won. They had a tricky-looking tie with defending champions Italy in the last round but put in a very good performance to come away with a 2-0 win. Ruben Vargas finally got his first Euro 2024 goal in that game and will be a danger for England, who the Swiss haven’t beaten since way back in 1981. The way they’ve been playing, this is their best chance to end that run.

As pre-tournament favourites, England are expected to progress and the bookies have them priced up to win this, although there is still some value in the match result market. Switzerland won’t sit back and invite England on, so we could get an end-to-end game. That’s leading us towards the England win and both teams to score pick. Harry Kane notched in extra time and he’s due a big game at this competition, he’s the selection to score first. Conor Gallagher may start in central midfield and, if he does, he’s worth backing to get a card.
