In the Switzerland vs England European qualifier betting odds, the local team is the favorite to win this match listed +150 in the soccer odds against +187 from England, and +220 in case of a draw.
This game is the debut of Vladimir Petkovic as the coach of the Swiss national team. Petkovic has the challenge of leading Switzerland after the myth Ottmar Hitzfeld, who coached the squad on a great World Cup in Brazil.
On the other hand, England arrives in this game after winning Norway (1-0) in a friendly match that represented the start of a new campaign. The English squad did an awful World Cup at Brazil 2014 and without their legends Frank Lampard and Steven Gerard, already retired from the national squad; all the eyes are on the young midfielders Jack Wildshere and Jordan Henderson as the natural substitutes for Lampard and Gerard.
“It is quite obvious to me that we do not have a midfielder with the range of passing to exploit these three attacking players,” ex player Paul Scholes said in his column in the Independent. “It is a radical solution, and one I would propose just for the Switzerland qualifier on Monday, but I would play Wayne Rooney in midfield.
Also in England, Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was ruled out man of the game after an injury suffered Friday at the training session at St. George’s Park.
