Under-pressure Roy Hodgson will come up against former employers Switzerland as he kick starts England’s bid to reach Euro 2016.
A poor world cup, England’s worst since 1954, coupled with a sluggish friendly win over Norway has seen Hodgson’s role come up for debate.
The former Blackburn and Liverpool manager has been defiant in the build up to the game in Basel however, telling reporters “Going out like we did in Brazil scars you. That will always be there but there is no point wallowing in the fact that you have received that scar.
“This is the first match of qualifying. We are not preparing for a World Cup final.
“We want to get off to a good start. We want to play well, we want to win but if we win 3-0 that still doesn’t mean to say we’re going to win the Euros in 2016.”
Hodgson will head to Switzerland minus the services of Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge. The striker misses the game after suffering a knock in training on Friday, later revealed to be a thigh injury. Rickie Lambert or new Arsenal man Danny Welbeck will replace the 25 year old.
Gary Cahill is expected to be fit after limping off against Norway with Phil Jones ready to fill the breach should the Chelsea man not make the game while West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster and uncapped Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback are already out of the squad, meaning just 17 of the original 20 travel to Switzerland.
The Three Lions have a good record against Switzerland winning 14 and drawing 5 of their 22 games. Their last defeat to the Swiss came in 1981 when they went down 2-1 and since then they have met 8 times with England winning 5. Their more recent clash was a 2-2 draw in the qualifiers for the 2012 European Championship at Wembley, although 12 months earlier they had won 3-1 in Switzerland.
Switzerland for their part will be playing their first game since crashing out of the world cup in the knock out stages at the hands of Argentina. The game will be Vladimir Petkovic’s first competitive game in charge of Switzerland since he replaced Ottmar Hitzfeld as coach during the summer.
The coach has recalled two of those that missed the trip to Brazil with Pajtim Kasami and Fabian Frei back in the squad while Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz, Benfica defender Loris Benito and Udinese defender Silvan Widmer all get their first calls-up.
