The feel-good summer has faded into the past, and England have now lost three competitive games on the bounce for the first time since 1988.
A tricky fixture awaits against Switzerland, as England look to build towards the 2020 European Championships. With Gareth Southgate likely to shuffle his pack and give squad players an opportunity, it is set to be an interesting encounter.
Our football betting expert guides you through the best bets for tonight’s game.
Three Lions need to get roaring again
Despite the most successful World Cup since 1990, England haven’t put the fear into many teams with excellent 90-minute performances.
With a few changes to the starting line up expected, this could be a chance for players to stake a claim in Southgate’s plans and deliver in front of the expectant King Power Stadium crowd.
Switzerland are a good outfit, but England will be looking to bounce back from some disappointment recently, and with the pressure off, we should see a confident display.
Swiss a solid yardstick
Switzerland bounced back from an underwhelming exit in the World Cup with a 6-0 thrashing of Iceland recently, and will be looking to build on that result here.
A team that contains plenty of dangerous players, and a young exciting core, Switzerland have a real chance to cause an upset. The ever dangerous Haris Seferovic is 7/2 to score anytime, and Switzerland to win to nil is 13/2.
Much was made of the decision to take the England show ‘on the road’ again, and the King Power Stadium will be a sell-out this evening.
One of the Foxes players announced himself a national hero in the World Cup, and will love nothing more than to treat his home fans to a special day.
With Harry Kane likely to be rested, it could be England’s other Harry who saves the day, and Harry Maguire to score and England win looks worth backing at 13/1.
