Switzerland Doesn’t Need To Worry Against England

LONDON: The Swiss media claims that Murat Yakin’s squad need not be afraid when facing England in the Euro 2024 quarter-finals this Saturday.

England came out with an erratic performance in the tournament this time but they were still able to progress to the last eight after coming from behind to beat Slovakia 2-1 in extra time.

The Three Lions squad is scheduled to face Switzerland who eliminated the defending champions, Italy 2-0.

Switzerland’s biggest newspaper, Blick, believes Gareth Southgate’s England are not a big threat.

The newspaper referred to England’s lackluster performance in the Euros so far.

The publication referred to England’s ‘fragile performance’.

Blick also commented on the dullness of England’s attacking machinery which has only managed to score four goals in four games so far.

The last competitive meeting between the two nations was in the Nations League third-place playoff in 2019 which saw England win on penalties with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford among the scorers.

Switzerland finished second in Group A at this summer’s tournament with five points from three games.

England also collected five points in the group stage but managed to emerge champions of Group C.
