John Stones believes that England can begin their Euro 2016 qualification campaign with a win when they face Switzerland in Basel this evening.

John Stones has expressed his belief that England can get their Euro 2016 qualification campaign off to a winning start when they play Switzerland in Basel this evening.

The Everton defender could make his first competitive appearance for the Three Lions after impressing at right-back in Friday's 1-0 victory over Norway.

Stones has admitted that England will face a tough test against the Swiss, who reached the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil.

"Going away, Switzerland will have the home fans behind them and we have to unsettle them in their own ground," Stones told Everton's official website.

"Watching them at the World Cup, they were very well-drilled and we have worked on that in training to find key spots.

"But with the quality that we have got in our squad I am sure we will cause them a lot of problems. I'm looking forward to it and it should be a very exciting game."

England drew 2-2 with Switzerland when the sides last met back in June 2011.
