Gareth Southgate has called for patience as he bids to close the perceived gap between his England team and the very top European nations even if there wasn’t a huge difference between the sides at Wembley on Saturday.
He’s also admitted that Tuesday’s team will not be first-choice players in several positions, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabian Delph, James Tarkowski and Ruben Loftus-Cheek among those players likely to be involved.
Kyle Walker should also come in at right wing-back although we’ve seen what happens when England field a weakened team, with the World Cup clash against Belgium seeing the side fail to create many chances and ultimately beaten.
Switzerland arrive off the back of thrashing Iceland 6-0 and there could be some value in backing them to simply win the match.
You can get a juicy price about the visitors claiming a victory and there are reasons for going with a team that boast the excellent Xherdan Shaqiri who has so much in his locker.
The Liverpool man hasn’t yet shown what he can do for his new club, although he’s got a brilliant set piece delivery and also has the sort of pace to unsettle an unfamiliar England back line.
With Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli unavailable, we’re happy to take a punt on the visitors and you can also take them on the Asian Handicap for a safer option.
