Wounded England football team look to restore some pride when they take on Switzerland in a friendly this Tuesday.
Despite taking an early lead, England went on to lose 1-2 in their opening home fixture of the UEFA Nations League.
Gareth Southgate is handed further blow at the end of the match as Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford suffering nasty injuries. The Manchester United duo were unarguably the brightest spot amidst the negative match result.
The Leicester City duo Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray are called up as replacements, however both are expected to start from the bench.
Switzerland on the other hand started their Nations League campaign in stunning style with a 6-0 thumping win over Iceland.
Vladimir Petkovic’s men struggled for goals at the World Cup this summer, the magnitude of recent victory will serve as a much needed confidence boost for the team in red and white.
At the same time, this is in par with recent trends we saw from the Swiss national football team, mostly confident displays in qualifiers and friendlies, underwhelming in major tournaments.

England vs Switzerland Prediction
Despite suffering a defeat to Spain last week, England hasn’t been that bad if you look at their overall performance and considering the opponent are one of the best in Spain.
It has been an easy night for the Swiss in the same period, however this is expected to be a tall order in a country they often failed to impress.
I definitely fell that there will be goals in this match and the hosts are poised to get the better of their opponent on the night.
