Home of the 2015/16 Premier League champions Leicester City, the King Power Stadium will host an England game for just the second time, after England beat Serbia & Montenegro here in 2003.
Gareth Southgate and his “Three Lions” were left fuming after a late equalising goal against Spain last week was controversially disallowed. If England’s H2H record against Switzerland (W3, D5, L20) means anything here, they have a great chance to vent their frustrations at the result on the Swiss.
Vladimir Petkovic occupies the Switzerland dugout, and this is a fixture he will be familiar with. Petkovic led his Swiss side out twice against England, losing 2-0 home and away in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign.
Home and away, respectively, these nations have a very strong recent record. Though each side lost its last respective game, England are unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 at home (W7, D4, L1) whilst Switzerland are unbeaten in five of their last six on the road (W3, D2, L1).
Players to watch: Harry Maguire will feel right at home here in Leicester. As shown in the World Cup, the burly defender has an eye for a headed goal.
Liverpool forward Xherdan Shaqiri is the highest scoring player for Switzerland in the current squad, after his goal last week took his international tally to 21 goals.
Stat attack: The last time both sides saw a goalless draw in any game was back in November 2017.
England are unbeaten in each of their last seven encounters with Switzerland (W5, D2) having also scored at least two goals in each victory.
Six of Switzerland’s last seven away games have produced under 2.5 goals in total.
