Wales win sets up key Switzerland game for England
Date Posted: 28/03/11
England's attempts to qualify for the 2012 European Championships will take another twist when they host Switzerland in their final game this season.
Following a confident 2-0 victory over Wales last weekend (Saturday March 26th), Fabio Capello's men will look to strengthen their chances of making it to the tournament in Poland and Ukraine when they play their fifth group game against the Swiss at Wembley Stadium on Saturday June 4th.
With ten points from their first four matches, England will be hot favourites to take three points from their clash in front of those booking London hotels, with Switzerland struggling on four points.
Against Wales, Frank Lampard and Darren Bent were the goal heroes for England in John Terry's first game back as national captain.
Midfielder Scott Parker impressed, while Tottenham's Michael Dawson helped shut Wales out as he replaced the injured former captain Rio Ferdinand in defence.
England are also in action tomorrow night (Tuesday March 29th) when they take on Ghana at the national stadium.
