A win for Belgium will put the Red Devils into next June’s UEFA Nations League Final Four in Portugal, with the host nation and England having already secured spots, per the BBC. Switzerland must win the game by 1-0 or 2-1 — or by more than one goal — in order to advance. The final semifinal spot will be determined when Germany meets the Netherlands on Monday, with a win or draw for Netherlands putting them through. On the other hand, a win by Germany will see 2018 World Cup winners France heading to Portugal in June.
