The Swiss opened the scoring in the match in the second half. Dan Ndoye crossed from the flank into the goalkeeper's area for Brel Embolo, who crossed the ball into the empty net.

Five minutes after conceding, Southgate's men equalized with a goal from Bukayo Saka. As the teams failed to score any more goals, the game went into extra time.

In extra time, the teams exchanged super chances. First, Jan Sommer pulled a long-range shot from Declan Rice, and the Swiss responded with a shot from Xherdana Shaqiri, which he curled from a corner, but hit the crossbar.

The decisive penalty in the shootout was a miss by Manchester City defender Manuel Akanji, which was saved by the Three Lions goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
