Switzerland defender Phillip Senderos believes that they will face a strong England team in their Euro 2016 qualifier.

Philippe Senderos has said that Switzerland are expecting to face a strong England side when they host the Three Lions in a Euro 2016 qualifier next week.

The Swiss side head into Monday's match after reaching the last 16 at the World Cup, while England are looking to put their disappointment from Brazil behind them.

The Aston Villa defender told The Sun: "It's possible that some players find the England shirt a little heavy. England are expected to win big games and go to every single tournament.

"With the players and the quality England have, it should be possible to do that and, to be fair, they have been qualifying for tournaments.

"Of course everyone expected more of them at the World Cup, but no games are easy at that level and it's hard to go through. I couldn't say where it went wrong for England. All I know is that they have enough players to pick a strong team against us."

England won a friendly against Norway at Wembley earlier this week.
