Euro 2024: I’ll Prefer To Face England In Quarter-Finals  –Akanji

Switzerland defender Manuel Akanji says he will be delighted to face England in the quarter-finals of Euro 2024.

Recall that Switzerland edged reigning champion Italy in the Round of 16 on Saturday, while England faces Slovakia today.

In a chat with TribalFootball, Akanji stated that England would be an ideal opponent for them.

“I hope we play England.

“I have a lot of friends there and they talk us a little bit small sometimes – not all of them but some of them – but I hope we’re going to play against them and I hope we’re going to win.”

“We’ve spoken in the group chat but not face to face. I might get a call if they win,” said Akanji. “It might look easier on this side but if England win and Netherlands win the teams we’d play are still Italy, England and Netherlands. It’s not as easy as it looks but we’ll see what happens.”

  • And England, you will get, kid.
    It was a great escape for England today against Slovakia.
    But you see their big-name players, Jude Bellingham and Henry Kane stepping up in big moments to get their team victory.
    We know our NFF stinks. We know our coaches are not of good caliber.
    But when will our much-ballyhooed stars stand up and be counted in big games, instead of ranting and raving on social media?
