In one of the more intriguing games in qualifying England take on Switzerland in Basel, Roy Hodgson's side are looking to bounce back from their first ever group exit at a World Cup. Englands chances of getting off to a flyer suffered a blow early this week when Daniel Sturridge injured himself and will miss the game tomorrow night. this will mean Roy Hodgson probably trning to Danny Wellbeck to lead the line up front alongside Wayne Rooney wil the electric Rahemm Sterling on the wing. England have players capable of winning games on their own in Rooney and Sterling but as a team the squad has struggled to gel and become a unit. at the back this English side look uncomfortable and unable to defend against pace.
Switzerland are one of those teams that seem to always qualify for major tournaments but then be a let down in the actual tournaments themselves. With talented individuals like Shaqiri , Inler, Stocker there are no shortage of game winners in this Switzerland team as well. one thing for sure is that Switzerland will not fear playing England. I think that Switzerland as a team showed bottle in the world cup coming out of the Group against France and then unluckily losing to Argentina in the last 16 in extra time.
Another European game that I dont love here, I think England on paper are the best side but paper doesnt often win a game, I would go and take the draw as I think England will be looking to get off to a solid rather than spectacular star. Follow me on twitte@antonpippo
