England players take a knee

England players and staff took the knee ahead of their World Cup qualifier against San Marino at Wembley.

The Three Lions had made the pre-match gesture in the previous international break but it was unclear whether they would continue to do so this time around.

Taking the knee was introduced following Project Restart in an attempt to raise awareness of the battle against racism, but a number of players and clubs have since opted out.

It had not been confirmed in the build-up to Thursday’s game if England would continue with the gesture, with discussions taking place among the squad on the eve of the match.

But, after a period of applause in memory of Glenn Roeder, Frank Worthington, Colin Bell and Peter Swan, the players took the knee – as did the San Marino contingent.

Speaking ahead of the game, manager Gareth Southgate told ITV Sport: “We’re going to take the knee.

“I think we’re unanimous on the bigger issues.

We’re a very tight team and we are conscious that there’s a little bit of a perception that perhaps the impact is waning a bit.

“But we don’t see a better way of broaching the issue at the moment and we feel it’s important as a country that they see our national football team united.”

England v Switzerland – 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship – Group D – Bonifika Stadium

Lacklustre England Under-21s suffered a nightmare start to Euro 2021 with a 1-0 defeat to Switzerland.

Nice striker Dan Ndoye’s late winner condemned the Young Lions to Group D defeat in Koper on Thursday.

Bastien Toma also hit a post for Switzerland while Andi Zeqiri was denied by Aaron Ramsdale in a deserved win for Mauro Lustrinelli’s side.

The extended tournament means the top two from the groups will qualify for the quarter-finals in May but Aidy Boothroyd’s men now face an uphill battle ahead of games against Portugal on Sunday and Croatia next Wednesday.

They will have to improve after defeat in Slovenia, with Lloyd Kelly heading their best chance wide in the first half.

Switzerland lost just once in qualifying from Group Two, finishing behind France on goal difference, to reach the finals for the first time in 10 years and they gave the Young Lions the first scare after 14 minutes.

It was all of England’s own making as Ben Godfrey gifted the ball to Toma who fed Zeqiri but the Brighton forward shot too close to Ramsdale with just the goalkeeper to beat.

A minute later Tom Davies swept over from 20 yards and Callum Hudson-Odoi curled wide soon after but, driven by the impressive Toma, Switzerland had gained a grasp of the game.

The Young Lions dominated the early possession but the Swiss had the better chances and Ramsdale turned Ndoye’s drive behind before Zeqiri headed wide after 28 minutes.

Kelly did head off target five minutes later but, against the disciplined Swiss, England struggled to find any serious attacking rhythm.

Boothroyd’s side also continued to give Switzerland openings and they escaped five minutes after the break.

Davies wasted possession and, when Jeremy Guillemenot crossed, the onrushing Toma hit a post from 10 yards.

It was another let-off and, while Hudson-Odoi’s free kick was turned wide by Anthony Racioppi, England never got going in the second half.

Ramsdale saved Kastriot Imeri’s low effort but Switzerland grabbed a deserved winner with 13 minutes left.

Imeri laid the ball off for Ndoye and, despite slipping as he shot, the striker’s effort from the edge of the area looped into the top corner.
