England is seeking to win again after defeating San Marino 0-10 in the World Cup Qualifiers – Europe. In the game, England had 85 percent possession and 22 shots on goal, 13 of which were on target. Harry Maguire (6’), Harry Kane (27’, 31’, 39’, 42’), Emile Smith Rowe (58’), Tyrone Mings (69’), Tammy Abraham (78’), and Bukayo Saka (79’) scored for England. San Marino had two shots on goal, one of which was on target. San Marino’s goal came via Fabbri (15’ Own goal). England has been on a fiery streak of late, scoring in all six of their games in a row. During that time, they have claimed 26 goals while having had two goals scored against them. We’ll have to wait and see if that tendency continues in this forthcoming match.
Switzerland enters this match on the back of a 4-0 WC Qualifiers – Europe wins against Bulgaria in their previous match. Switzerland had 69 percent possession and 18 shots on goal, with 9 of them being an on target in the game. Noah Okafor (48’), Ruben Vargas (57’), Cedric Itten (72’), and Remo Freuler (91’) scored for Switzerland. Bulgaria had 1 shot on goal, with 0 of them being on target. A string of solid performances by Switzerland’s defence unit has resulted in a ‘goal’s against’ tally of one from their past six matches. During the same period, they have scored 11 goals on their own.
A study of their previous head-to-head outcomes dating back to 07/09/2010 reveals that these encounters have resulted in defeat for Switzerland. They have failed to win a single match, whilst England has maintained their lead, winning 67% of those matches. In these games, they scored 13 goals, with The Three Lions scoring ten and Nati scoring three. The average number of goals scored for each game has been 2.17.
Switzerland can score a goal against this England team, albeit it is unlikely to be as many as they will have scored against them. We predict both sides will score, resulting in a 2-1 victory for England. I’m looking forward to it.
