England beat Switzerland in a tiebreaker in the semis


1-1 draw at 120 minutes. The match was a tiebreaker. England had the last laugh on the fate of that tiebreaker, seeing off Switzerland. Gareth Southgate’s team reached the semi-finals of the Euro Cup after defeating the Swiss 5-3.

Cole Palmer scored early in the tiebreaker with a shot. Soon after, Manuel Akanji came in to take the kick for the Swiss and missed. The English went ahead 1-0.

Jude Bellingham scored the second shot. Fabien Schaar came to take the second shot for the Swiss and narrowed the gap with a goal.

English goalscorer Saka came to take the third shot. He also scored for the Three Lions. Shaqiri scored the third shot for the Swiss to make it 2-3.

Ivan Toney scored in the fourth shot to give England a 4-2 lead. Anthony scored for the Swiss to reduce the deficit to 4-3. England won 5-3 when Alexander Arnold scored the fifth shot.

Earlier, with the goal of Mbolo, the Swiss assumed that they were going to win against England. But Bukayo Saka’s brilliant goal brought the English back to parity and took the match into extra time. If there is no goal there, the match will be a tiebreaker. The scheduled 90-minute game was tied at 1-1.

The English continued their poor performance in the tournament in this match. They could not make such an attack to catch the attention of the Swiss in the D box.

The English had to wait until 22 minutes to get the first chance at the Dusseldorf Arena. Trippier’s cross from the corner was given a chance in the D box but Harry Kane headed the ball wide.

After the first half was goalless, both teams maintained their spiritless game in the second half. Mbolo’s weak shot in the 51st minute was easily palmed away by Pickford

The Swiss got the desired goal in the 75th minute of the match. Until then, they kept playing under pressure. Mbolo scored with his left foot past the defender from Ndoe’s cross. He was the last Swiss player to score against England.

England fell behind after a goal, Gareth Southgate replaced Luke Shock. That changed the English. England equalized in the 81st minute with a great long-range shot by Bukayo Saka. If no more chances were created towards the end of the match, the regular time game ended in a 1-1 draw.

In the 95th minute of extra time, Swiss goalkeeper Sommer saved Declan Ayse’s long-range shot to the left for a corner. Judd Bellingham’s shot was also palmed by this goalkeeper in 102 minutes.

If both teams play with 50 percent possession of the ball but fail to create any scoring chances, the match will be a tiebreaker.
