England v Switzerland (Kick-off 5.00pm). Coverage of the third quarter-final, held at Dusseldorf Arena. After topping a group containing Serbia, Denmark and Slovenia, England were on the brink of a shock last-16 defeat at the hands of Slovakia, but Jude Bellingham scored a spectacular overhead kick in injury-time, before Harry Kane headed home in extra time to give them a 2-1 win. However, they are likely to need an improved display if they are to defeat the Swiss, who came second in their group behind Germany and above Hungary and Scotland, before producing an excellent display to eliminate holders Italy with a 2-0 win courtesy of goals by Remo Freuler and Ruben Vargas.
