FULL-TIME: ENGLAND 2-1 SWITZERLAND
The Three Lions seal the win at Wembley! Harry Kane's 49th England goal - to level himself with Bobby Charlton in the standings - is enough to just edge this one. Switzerland gave a good account of themselves in the first half, but the hosts were the better side in the second. Job done for Gareth Southgate's side in this international friendly.

90+2'
BLOCK!
Switzerland try one last time to break forward. Rodriguez drives down the left, and crosses the ball into the box but Rice is there to initally head the ball clear. Gavrinovic picks up the loose ball, and lays it off to Aebischer, but Bellingham is there to stand firm and make the block.

GOALLLLL! ENGLAND LEAD
Kane slots the penalty into the bottom corner and England take the lead! He made no mistake, eventhough Omlin went the right way.
76'
PENALTY!
The corner comes in, and the ball touches the arm of Zuber! His back was to the play, but it could be argued that his arm was not in a natural position.
It is referred to VAR, and they tell the referee to check the pitchside monitor. He gives the penalty!
74'
CLOSE!
With the change in formation to a back four, White is now at right-back, and as a result is going forward. Rice plays him in with a great cross-field pass. He opts to hit it first-time from a tight angle, but Rodriguez gets a vital block in and it goes out for a corner.
70'
OVER!
Ben White gets forward, and the ball falls to the centre-back outside the area. He goes for goal from distance, but his effort goes just over the crossbar.
69'
CHANCE!
Henderson plays in Mitchell down the left, who gets in the game by putting a dangerous floated cross into the box for Kane. The striker gets his head on it, and the effort it on target, but there is no power on it and Omlin holds comfortably.

CORNER TO SWITZERLAND
Mbabu finds himself in space down the right and tries to deliver a cross to the far post, but England head the ball clear and it goes out for a corner.
The set-piece comes to nothing.
57'
BLOCKED!
Gallagher does what he does best and wins the ball in midfield and quickly turns it over. He plays in Kane in front of him, but the striker cannot quite get the ball back across goal for one of his team-mates to hit as it is blocked.
Activity on the England bench as Tyrick Mitchell and Raheem Sterling are warming up.
52'
HALF-CHANCE!
Chance from the resulting corner! Mount whips one in from the right towards the centre. Guehi gets his head on it, but the ball is always moving away from the far post in the air. Coady tries to get a touch on it on the stretch to guide it in, but he cannot quite get there. Goal-kick.
