England were brought back down to earth in their game against Spain on Saturday, and after a sweet run at the World Cup, the Three Lions showed in that game why their manager said they had overachieved in Russia.
They were beaten 2-1 by the former World Champions at Wembley to continue their rather unimpressive run of goal returns when they play at home.
This English team is almost the same as the one who played at the World Cup, with Raheem Sterling pulling out, and Luke Shaw injured, a few changes might take place in this game, but we expect the same back three that featured the impressive Joe Gomez. Would the Three Lions continue their dominance over Switzerland?
Switzerland made a minor tactical change in their last game against Iceland and they beat the European minors by 6 goals in their last match. With Xerdan Shaqiri running the show from attacking midfield, the Swiss showed in that game just how abundantly talented they are.
Both of these sides have decent records over the past couple of years, but there is a certain lack of goals shining through at both ends of the pitch. Since Southgate took charge in September 2016, England have seen seven of their 12 home games end with fewer than three goals scored, including back to back goalless draws against Germany and Brazil.
England have lost just one of their 14 meetings with Switzerland, and four of the last five encounters have resulted in a win for The Three Lions. The last of these was in 2015 in the qualifying campaign for Euro 2016, with England winning both fixtures 2-0.
