England vs Switzerland Euro 2024 quarter-final match date and broadcast channels | Sports

England will be armed with a historic, overwhelming advantage when they meet Switzerland on Saturday, July 6, in Dusseldorf in the quarter-finals of the European Football Championship being held in Germany.

Switzerland, led by coach Murat Yakin, impressed everyone with their outstanding performances and strong results throughout their journey in Euro 2024, as they started their journey in Group A with a 3-1 win over Hungary, then drew 1-1 with Scotland before Germany snatched a draw with the same result, with difficulty, with a goal from Niklas Füllkrug in the last seconds.

In the second round, the Swiss team continued its strong performances and eliminated the title holder, the Italian team, by defeating it 2-0 in a one-sided match.

As for the England national team, led by its coach Gareth Southgate, it did not convince anyone throughout its journey in the tournament, amid a severe decline in the level of most of the team’s stars and their exposure to severe criticism, especially Phil Foden, the Manchester City star and winner of the English Premier League Player of the Year award last season, as well as Jude Bellingham, who shone brightly in his first season with Real Madrid.

The Three Lions qualified as group winners after a lacklustre win over Serbia with a solitary goal from Harry Kane, followed by draws with Slovenia and Denmark. In the second round, England beat Slovakia 2-1.

The third confrontation in the Euro

England and Switzerland meet for the third time in the European Championship, having drawn 1-1 at Euro 1996 and the Three Lions winning 3-0 at Euro 2004.

Otherwise, the English team has a crushing advantage in direct confrontations with its competitor, achieving 19 wins against 5 draws, while Switzerland achieved only 3 wins, the last of which was in 1981 in the qualifiers for the 1982 World Cup.

All the nominations are in favour of the England team, as it includes big stars in various lines, such as Kane, Bellingham, Foden, Bukayo Saka, Declan Rice, Kyle Walker, John Stones and Trent Alexander-Arnold, as well as promising young players such as Kobe Mainoo, Cole Palmer and Anthony Gordon.

On the other hand, Murat Yakin, the coach of the Swiss national team, relies on strong pillars such as Yann Sommer, the goalkeeper of Inter Milan, Manuel Akanji, the defender of Manchester City, the team captain Granit Xhaka, the midfielder of Bayer Leverkusen, the German league champion, the veteran player Xherdan Shaqiri, and the fast attacking wings such as Ruben Vargas, Breel Embolo, Dan N’Doye and Kwadwo Duah.

The winner of the England vs. Switzerland match will advance to the semi-finals, awaiting the winner of the 1988 European champions Netherlands vs. Turkey match.
