Jude Saves England

England once again put in a dire performance against Slovakia, who were just seconds away from eliminating Southgate’s side from the tournament. Were it not for a moment of brilliance from Jude Bellingham right at the death, Slovakia would have gone through with a 1-0 win. England then went on to win the game in extra time thanks to a Harry Kane header to send England through, but the result just papers over the cracks.

Furthermore, one of England’s best performers so far and one who provided the winning assist, Marc Guehi, will be suspended for the quarter-final after accumulating too many yellow cards. Ezri Konsa is the most likely to replace him, but this shake up in what has been a solid defensive set up so far could unsettle England against a far more potent Swiss attack.

Switzerland Continue to Impress

On the other hand, Switzerland have been excellent so far in this tournament under manager Murat Yakin. Xhaka has continued the fine form he showed at Leverkusen, whilst Akanji has been immense at the back. Other standout players for Switzerland include Vargas, Reider, Embolo, as well as wing backs Aebischer and Ndoye.

This will be the first opponent England face who will be willing to open up and play an attacking brand of football. Whether this will benefit England in an attacking sense or expose their defence is yet to be seen. Moreover, Granit Xhaka looks like he will also be fit to start after an injury scare.
