England and Switzerland are set to go head to head in an international friendly on Tuesday night in Leicester. England go into this game as the favourites.
Kick-off : 8:00 PM (Local)
Venue : King Power Stadium, Leicester
England resume international football after the FIFA World Cup. The Three Lions had a successful World Cup despite failing to reach the final. England lost to Croatia in the Semi-Finals.
England are playing in the newly formed UEFA Nations League as are other European countries. But their focus will still be on the friendly against the Swiss.
Switzerland are a good side and England shouldn’t be complacent and need to be at their best.
On the other hand, Switzerland themselves will be keen to return to international football and be part of a competitive friendly against the likes of England.
Switzerland had a successful World Cup too, reaching the round of 16. They are well known of their capabilities and it will be a good test against England.
Overall England have a good record against Switzerland and they will look to continue the good work on Tuesday night.
Team news and possible line-ups
Denis Zakaria and Kevin Mbabu are both available for Switzerland for the England friendly and will likely play.
As for England, they might consider handing over debut to Marcus Bettinelli on Tuesday night. While Luke Shaw is available and will play.
Switzerland XI : Sommer, Mbabu, Akanji, Schar, Rodriguez, Xhaka, Widmer, Seferovic, Shakiri, Zuber, Embolo.
England XI : Butland, Walker, Stones, Tarkowski, Alexander-Arnold, Rose, Dier, Delph, Loftus-Cheek, Kane, Welbeck.
I expect it to be a tightly fought contest but England should prevail in the end. I think the The Three Lions will win 2-1. The goalscorers might be Kane and Rose for England and Embolo for Switzerland.
