Switzerland vs England: What has been said?

Southgate says he won’t overreact to Thursday’s defeat which saw John Stones and Ross Barkley punished for woeful mistakes in extra-time.

And the England boss insists he is still working towards the ‘bigger picture’ with his side.

Southgate said: “I’ve got to not overreact to those things and I have got to be there to support them in what is a difficult moment for everybody.

“It was tough to take in the end. You get to a semi-final, another semi-final, it should be a positive, but of course everyone leaves even more deflated.

“I can understand that but I have to look at the bigger picture of what the players have given me and the way that they’ve tried incredibly for their country.”

Switzerland vs England: Squads and team news

Southgate plans to ring the changes, with defender Stones’ role under scrutiny.

Manchester City centre-back Stones was culpable for two of the Dutch goals on Thursday, outmuscled by Matthijs De Ligt at a corner and then later robbed by Memphis Depay as he dithered on the ball, while also playing Barkley into trouble ahead of the third.
