High-scoring affair expected on Sunday between England vs Switzerland

<div><h2>Switzerland vs England</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-nations-league-league-c-gr-4/switzerland-vs-england-3819661/?mtid=1">Sunday, June 9, at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques (Guimarães)</a></p><p>England’s defensive fiasco cost them a place in the final of the tournament. They lost the Nations League semifinal 3-1 on Thursday to Netherlands so they will now face Switzerland on Sunday. Marcus Rashford's penalty goal after he was fouled by Matthijs de Ligt gave the Three Lions the lead at half-time, but the Netherlands were very strong in the 2nd half with the same de Ligt scoring the equalizer with a superb header. On the other side, despite dominating the match and creating many scoring opportunities, Switzerland were minutes away from going in extra-time against hosts Portugal, but Cristiano Ronaldo won the match for his national team scoring 2 goals in the last minutes of the game.</p><p>What does the third-place winner get? Not much… but €1 million more than the 4th place. That doesn’t mean we will see a strong starting XI from the 2 sides. We expect the 2 managers to heavily rotate their squads and play an open football. England should have enough to win this match but in order to do that they should learn from their defensive mistakes and don’t repeat them. The “hosts” are a strong attacking side who are scoring goals for fun. They scored 11 in their previous 4 matches across all competition and they will definitely take advantage of England’s defensive problems and extend their brilliant scoring form.</p><p>In terms of fitness, Switzerland should be better as they had an extra day of rest but also let’s not forget England had to play extra time in their match. But as we already mentioned we expected a heavy rotation from the 2 coaches with many players expected to be given the chance to perform and show what they are capable of.</p><p>We expect an entertaining match with both teams contributing on the scoreboard and at least 3 goals in the game.</p><p><em><strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Best tip for the match: Over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.8 with Bet365</a>.</strong></em></p><p><em><strong> <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=93&amp;a=f962fe8c-7142-41cc-9fbc-a09fda7d1d6c&amp;f=1" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5cfaccbf33dae02aa8d5a4b9/original-england-to-beat-switzerland-bet-victor" style="width:200px;height:240px;" /></a></strong></em><br /> </p></div>
