Euro 2024 Quarter-finals

Saturday, 6th July

 Travel to England England 1-1 aet (5:3 pens) Switzerland Travel to Switzerland

Not the liveliest of encounters. The only English player doing it like he does for his club seemed to be punt it upfield Pickford.

Switzerland started the second-half better and were the first to make substitutions.

It took seventy-five minutes, but it was coming. The constant Swiss pressure and fresh sustitutions paid off as Breel Embolo toe poked a low, deflected cross from the right, past Jordon Pickford.

Something had to change. Gareth Southgate made three and England replied within five minutes; Bukayo Saka cutting in from the right and firing goalwards from the edge of the area.

The third quarter-final to go to extra time at Euro 2024; and the second to penalties.
