Gareth Southgate considering major changes for England’s upcoming match against Switzerland – Mirror Online

Gareth Southgate is considering a tactical change for England’s Euros quarter final match against Switzerland. The team practiced using a back-three formation in preparation for the game, possibly to counter the flexibility of the Swiss national team’s manager, Murat Yakin, who is known for varying his selections. Switzerland has also used a back three, and England even set up mannequins in that formation during an open training session.

Southgate had found success with a back three in the 2018 World Cup, leading England to the semi finals. Despite initially stating that they had not considered reverting to a back three for the Euros, it seems that Southgate is now exploring this option to improve their performance and change their fortunes. The England team has two more days of full training before the match in Dusseldorf, while Yakin has expressed confidence in the Swiss team’s ability to compete and potentially defeat England, citing their previous performances against Germany and Italy in the tournament.
