England scraped to a penalty shootout victory over Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff after missing numerous opportunities over 120 minutes.

Everton’s Jordan Pickford was England’s spot-kick hero again as the Three Lions beat Switzerland.

England had been beaten 3-1 in extra time by the Netherlands only three days earlier and struck the woodwork twice through Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling. Sterling missed a number of chances to score during the game, whilst Switzerland goalkeeper made excellent saves to deny Dele Alli. Callum Wilson also had a goal overturned after VAR intervened.

Harry Maguire, Ross Barkley, Jadon Sancho, Sterling, Pickford and Eric Dier all scored in the penalty shootout for England.

As the result was a draw over 120 minutes, England have now won just one of their last seven games at tournament finals (D3, L3).
