England kick off their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign against Switzerland on Monday and manager Roy Hodgson will be hoping his youthful side can launch a new era after the disappointment of Brazil.

New captain Wayne Rooney has promised a festival of attacking football after a series of promising training sessions in the build-up to Wednesday's friendly against Norway.

But with Switzerland ranked ninth in the world, 11 places higher than England in 20th, and buoyed after an impressive World Cup campaign, life will not be easy for Hodgson, Rooney and Co. when they travel to Basel next week.

Bet365 is offering 7/4 on a Switzerland victory, while an England win is priced at 8/5 with the same company. A repeat of the last result between the two sides - a 2-2 draw at Wembley - is priced at 18/1.
