Match No. 1029 - Saturday, 26th March 2022, 5:30pm

  • Assist: Conor Gallagher. "Foden pressed Frei towards the corner flag and the defender’s risky pass was intercepted by a stretching Kyle Walker-Peters, another England debutant. The ball broke for Gallagher and, when his low cross ran through for Shaw, the finish was explosive." Luke Shaw2nd of 2 goals. Left-footed from 18 yards., 45' +145:11
  • "The 78th minute penalty was the big talking point and it was one to make Switzerland and their substitute, Steven Zuber, feel sore. Zuber had jumped for a corner with his back to the ball and, although his arm was away from his body, he knew very little about it when Marc Guéhi, the England debutant, thudded a header into him." Harry Kane49th of 49 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 78' 77:52 (pen)
