England v Switzerland Prediction, Tips and Odds: Ndoye a big danger to Three Lions

England have so far failed to live up to expectations at the Euros and face a tough task in trying to see off an in-form Switzerland side and secure a place in the semi-finals.

The Three Lions are through to a fourth consecutive major tournament quarter-final for the first time, but they have struggled to meet expectations this summer and needed a dramatic fightback to secure a 2-1 extra-time triumph over Slovakia in the round of 16.

They face a step up in class against Switzerland, who coasted through to a second successive European Championship quarter-final with last Saturday’s superb 2-0 triumph over Italy.

The Swiss have impressed from the start of the tournament and are tipped to make further progress by Dan Childs, who has picked out his three best bets for the Dusseldorf encounter.

Dan Childs' England v Switzerland tips and predictions

Switzerland to qualify - 11/8

England have got away with a series of poor performances at Euro 2024 and could be put out of their misery by Switzerland, who look a solid punt to reach the final four.

A superb swing of Jude Bellingham’s right boot got England out of a major hole last Sunday, but the general team performance was as bad as anything the Three Lions have served up this summer and the bar was already fairly low after the mediocre fare served up in the group stage.

Gareth Southgate has started 10 players in all four games and will be forced into at least one change against Switzerland due to Marc Guehi’s suspension.

It has been reported that Southgate is considering a formation change, involving a switch from a back four to a three, but there are no signs of a dramatic diversion from the cautious theme of his selections.

England’s best players have played nowhere near their potential and, if that is to continue, there will be a fantastic opportunity for Switzerland to progress to the final four of a major tournament for the first time in their history.

Unlike England, they look a well-coached team suited to the formation and tactics of their head coach.

Murat Yakin’s side brushed aside a dismal Italy last Saturday and they can knock out another heavyweight only seven days later.

Dan Ndoye to score or assist - 15/4

A number of Switzerland players have impressed this summer, but arguably their brightest spark in attack has been Dan Ndoye, who has performed well in multiple positions.

Ndoye had his best game of the tournament in the 1-1 draw against Germany - scoring the game’s opening goal and going extremely close to a second.

But he was asked to switch to a right wing-back role for the round of 16 game against Italy due the absence of suspended team-mate Silvan Widmer.

Ndoye deputised impressively against the Italians, but he seems likely to re-join the front three against England and can do plenty of damage to Southgate’s side.

The 23-year-old has pace and intelligent movement and has shown a willingness to make runs off the flank and get in behind opposition defences.

England will be mindful of the threat but they were exposed by Ivan Schranz’s clever movement during last Sunday’s success over Slovakia and may struggle to prevent Ndoye from making a similar impact.

Jude Bellingham to be carded - 6/1

Bellingham has provided England’s best two moments of Euro 2024, but he has also been a frustrated figure at times and may struggle to keep his emotions in check this weekend.

As one of England’s brightest talents, Bellingham is under pressure to deliver every time he steps onto the pitch.

He also attracts plenty of attention from the opposition and has been fouled nine times, which is more than any other England player.

Bellingham has struggled to keep his cool and was one of three England players booked inside the opening 17 minutes against Slovakia.

However, he will continue to be in the thick of the action and looks a worthwhile option for a card against Switzerland.
