England vs Switzerland: Live Score and Live Updates


Switzerland is gearing up to play some of their good football in the friendly match against England at the Wembley Stadium. Switzerland is one of the co-host of this year’s EURO competition. So, they will look to win the friendly match, which will boost up their confidence level ahead of the EURO 2008. What is more, Switzerland is currently running without half of their regular players who are out of action with injury.

Koebi Kuhn, coach of Switzerland had to face some problem while naming the squad for the friendly match against England. His contract with Switzerland national team will terminate after the EURO 2008 and will be replaced by Bayern Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld. So, he must try his best to bring some good results for Switzerland before his farewell.

Earth Times reported:

The Swiss have the string of poor results behind them and are plagued by injury - with half of the regular starters sidelined.

Kuhn has been hard pushed to name his strikers, with Marco Streller out of action and captain Alexander Frei struggling to regain his fitness. He has called up Streller's teenage team mate at FC Basel, uncapped 19-year-old Eren Derdiyok.

Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos is in the 23-strong squad selected for Wembley, along with Manchester City midfielder Gelson Fernandes and Red Bull Salzberg's striker Johan Vonlanthen.

I think, Switzerland is balanced side, despite the injury blows. They reached the round of 16 in the last world cup before losing to Ukraine in penalty shoot out. Switzerland did not have to play the qualifying round of EURO 2008. Thus, they may lack of competitive football. They played 10 friendly matches last year with winning five matches. So, they need to take the friendly matches seriously as part of their EURO 2008 preparation. Now, let us see if Koebi Kuhn can lead his side to bring out an impressive result in the friendly match against England.
