Quarter-Final: England v Switzerland

BergMan

England were at least as good as Switzerland, probably edged overall play. Neither side created many clear cut chances.

England were alright, nothing more than that.

Switzerland are a decent, functional side, that's all.

How did England edge it though. England’s only chances were shots from outside the box. Switzerland created at least 3 chances inside the box over 120 minutes.
England xG 0.66
Switzerland xG 1.49

Switzerland were the better side over 120 minutes.

England will take the Dutch. This new formation is much better at embodying the defend at all costs philosophy of Southgate. Walker focusing on defence unshackled from having to go up will completely shut down their only threat down the left with Gakpoo. It’ll finish 0-0 and England win on penalties.

Saka, Rice, Palmer will score. Netherlands will miss all of theirs as Pickford’s water bottle will grow arms and legs and distract their penalty takers. Foden will be discovered a few days later after hiding in a locker and getting stuck.

England have clutch players.

Anyone who lived through Ferguson’s glory years should be familiar with this concept.

Clutch players win you trophies. The Swiss didn’t have them, doesn’t matter how many fancy ass shots they took in the box.

Weak.
 

Arsenal Quotes

I knew we were very different, that he (Ferguson) had a total hold over his club while at that time I was still more of a coach. I also recognised his huge qualities. He knew how to surround himself with the right people and didn't rest on his laurels when he was successful.
