England secures a semi-final place with victory over Switzerland in 2024 Euros


England narrowly avoided a Euro 2024 exit and secured a spot in the semi-finals with a penalty shootout victory over Switzerland in Dusseldorf.

Gareth Southgate’s team, saved by Jude Bellingham’s late equalizer in the last 16 against Slovakia, faced another scare when Breel Embolo scored for Switzerland with just 15 minutes remaining.

England’s flawless penalties and Jordan Pickford’s save of Manuel Akanji’s initial attempt paved the way for their win. Cole Palmer, Jude Bellingham, Saka, and Ivan Toney all converted their penalties before Trent Alexander-Arnold sealed the victory with the decisive kick.

England will now face the Netherlands in Dortmund on Wednesday at 20:00 BST, marking their first major tournament meeting since Euro 96.
