Switzerland win on penalties: 8/1

On all known form, this tournament, the Swiss should win. England have, frankly, been pathetic in their four games and are only at this stage because of a worldie from Jude Bellingham.

On paper they have by far the superior side, and arguably the best attacking players at the Euros, but they have looked tired, uninspiring and short of ideas under their overly conservative manager.

By contrast, Switzerland have been a genuine breath of fresh air in Germany. They are a possession-based side, but there is a lot of style with the substance. And though they were given a helping hand from the lamentable Italians in the round of 16, Murat Yakin’s men were foot-perfect from kick-off.

Switzerland’s foundations are built upon an experienced goalkeeper and a back three that have amassed an extraordinary number of international caps. Manuel Akanji is world class, Granit Xhaka has never been in better form in his life and Ruben Vargas is on fire.

Yakin’s side will be unable to dictate play against England, who do at least try to play football these days. But they have shown throughout the tournament that they can happily soak up pressure before unleashing potent counter-attacks between the lines.

Class could, of course, finally shine through for England, who were favourites for the Euros before the tournament. But once a team, no matter how good a starting XI on paper, is stuck in a rut, it is a very difficult place from which to escape.

To that end, odds of 14/5 about a Switzerland win represent tremendous value.

The Verdict: Switzerland to win

England HT; Switzerland FT – Odds: 50/1

Having clearly been affronted by criticism from fans and media alike, expect a strong start from an England side that are trying, but failing quite badly, in their attempts to create a siege mentality.

The trouble, however, is that they can never be trusted to hold on to a lead. With almost metronomic precision, Southgate has gained a deservedly bad reputation for caution when being on the front foot could have yielded so much more.

He will not change now, so another England collapse after the break almost feels inevitable. At the prices, it is worth a punt.

John Stones to score at any time – Odds: 20/1

England have so far been appalling from set-pieces, which is largely down to the absence of Harry Maguire. But they have worked so hard for so long that the old magic that has served them so well in previous tournaments must surely come into play at some stage at the Euros.

Stones is good in the air, but he is also handy with his feet and rates a solid big-priced contender to give England the lead, even if it does prove immaterial.
