England vs Switzerland : The Nations League third/fourth-place play-off between England and Switzerland in Guimaraes. The two countries find themselves having to play this game – the game nobody wants to play – because they both lost 3-1 in their respective semi-finals.
For the second time in 11 months, England came within two games of their first trophy since the country that claims to have invented the sport won its first and only World Cup — 53 years ago, as the BBC reported. But both times — first at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and just this week in the semifinal of the first-ever UEFA Nations League — Manager Gareth Southgate’s squad came up short and ended up playing for third place. In last year’s World Cup, England bowed to Belgium in the consolation playoff. Now, the Three Lions get another shot at a third-place finish, when they take on Switzerland — losers in the semifinals to host nation Portugal — in the Nations League consolation game that will live stream on Sunday.

England defender Joe Gomez has outlined the importance of his side’s upcoming UEFA Nations League third-place clash with Switzerland on Sunday.
The Three Lions fell to a 3-1 defeat after extra-time against Netherlands on Thursday, despite taking the lead through Marcus Rashford’s 32nd minute penalty, as goals from Matthijs de Ligt, Quincy Promes and Kyle Walker’s own goal sent Oranje through to the final.
It hardly matters whether England finish third or fourth in the UEFA Nations League, but that does not mean that there is nothing to gain from Sunday’s game against Switzerland.
The World Cup was only one year ago but if Thursday night taught England anything it was that they have to keep changing, improving, and trying to put as much distance as possible between Russia and now.
