Switzerland Form & Team News

Switzerland suffered a 3-1 defeat to Portugal in Wednesday’s first semi-final. They fell behind in the first half with Riccardo Rodriguez netting the equaliser from the penalty spot before being breached twice late in the contest.

Vladimir Petkovic’s team had been in good form prior to the defeat to Portugal having gone unbeaten in three matches. They often struggle at the back having failed to keep a clean sheet in seven of their last eight matches.

England Form & Team News

England were beaten in the semi-final, losing 3-1 to the Netherlands after extra time. Regulation time had ended 1-1 after Marcus Rashford’s first half penalty was cancelled out by the Dutch.

Gareth Southgate’s men were unbeaten in their last seven matches before the match with the Netherlands. Their major problem has been at the back where they have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four matches.
