The result meant England avoided a fourth successive defeat for the first time in their history, after losses against Croatia, Belgium and Spain.

Switzerland, who lost in the last 16 of the World Cup to England’s quarter-final opponents Sweden, created good opportunities in the first half but lacked a clinical edge in front of goal.

England continue their run of fixtures against top nations with a Nations League double header in October against Croatia and Spain.
