It’s been over 50 years since England has won an international soccer trophy (the last time being the 1966 World Cup), and now, for the second time in 11 months, they’ve come within two games of snagging one, the BBC reports. On both occasions — first at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and just this week in the semifinal of the first-ever UEFA Nations League — Manager Gareth Southgate’s squad came up short and ended up playing for third place. In last year’s World Cup, England bowed to Belgium in the consolation playoff. Now, the Three Lions get another shot at a third-place finish, when they take on Switzerland — losers in the semifinals to host nation Portugal — in the Nations League consolation game that will live stream on Sunday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. Western European Time at the 30,000-seat Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães, Portugal, on Sunday, June 9. In the United Kingdom, the start time will also be 2 p.m. British Summer Time, while in Switzerland, the live stream begins at 3 p.m. Central European Time.

In the United States, kickoff is scheduled for 9 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 6 a.m. Pacific. In India, the live stream gets underway at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday evening.

Southgate told the BBC that the third-place game, far from being a consolation prize, is “an important international match,” and his team plans to approach it that way.

“We lost an important game and we have got thousands of fans here and we need to make sure our performance gives something back and that we finish the season in the right manner,” Southgate said.

England’s semifinal, 3-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Thursday ended a five-match winning streak for the team, according to Soccerway. The squad has not suffered a defeat to Switzerland since 1981 — looking at their last 11, England won eight, with three drawn, per 11v11.
