England are set to take on Switzerland in their quarter-final game on Saturday. Coach Gareth Southgate is set to play a 3-4-3 formation in the massive game. It has come to light that the English coach will deploy Bakayo Saka as a left wingback. 

Many Liverpool fans will not be happy as Trent Alexander Arnold is set to be benched. Kieran Trippier will be playing as the right wingback. The reason behind this move is due to the fast play on the wings that Switzerland tend to bring about. 

On Friday, Spain and France booked their place in the semifinals of the EURO 2024 tournament. Spain broke the hearts of the local German fans as they won the game 2-1. Mikel Merino scored the deciding goal in the 118th minute of the game.

France on the other hand, saw the match go into penalties before beating Portugal. Jao Felix missed the only penalty of the game as the French converted all their kicks to book their place in the semifinals of the EURO 2024 tournament.

England set for counter-attacking tactics

Harry Kane is set to start the game as the sole striker. Jude Bellingham and Phil Foden will be playing behind the Bayern Munich striker as the two midfielders. 

Declan Rice and Kobbie Mainoo will be the other two midfielders in the team. The wingback duties have been assigned to Bakayo Saka and Kieran Trippier.

The decision to play Saka as a left wing back in particular is a controversial one. Luke Shaw has been passed fit for the game but is unlikely to start. 

Kyle Walker and Konsa will play either side of John Stones. Jordan Pickford will be Manning the goal as the English side is set to play against an upbeat Switzerland side on Saturday. In the other game, Netherlands and Turkey will lock horns in the final quarter-final game of the tournament
