Nations League: England beat Switzerland 6-5 on penalties after 0-0 draw

England have won their past two penalty shootouts in major tournaments, after losing their last six

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford scored one penalty then saved another as England beat Switzerland in a shootout to finish third at the inaugural Uefa Nations League finals.

The Everton player hammered home the Three Lions' fifth spot-kick before saving Josip Drmic's effort.

The penalty drama came after a lacklustre 120 minutes had ended 0-0.

England thought they had won just before the end of normal time but VAR overruled Callum Wilson's strike.

Hosts Portugal will take on the Netherlands in the Nations League final at 19:45 BST on Sunday.
