Ronaldo vs Mbappé – it’s a battle of giant proportions! Will the match live up to the hype? On the side, both teams have struggled to find their rhythm, with Portugal relying heavily on Ronaldo’s fading brilliance and France’s attack seeming disjointed despite their individual talent.

England vs Switzerland

Saturday, 12 p.m. ET, Fox

England barely escaped disaster… can they shine against Switzerland’s steady play? It’s grit against glory. England’s late heroics, led by Jude Bellingham’s stunning bicycle kick, kept their hopes alive. However, their defensive-first approach under Gareth Southgate often leaves fans yearning for more flair. Switzerland, on the other hand, is the epitome of consistency.

Dismantling Italy highlighted their tactical prowess, but questions remain about their ability to spark. This match will be a test of whether England can break through Switzerland’s disciplined defense or if the Swiss will continue their steady march forward.
