Sporting Alert – Watch live streaming coverage of the international football game between Switzerland and Belgium at Stade de Suisse on ESPN3 and WatchESPN.com.
Live broadcasting coverage is also available on ESPN2, as well as the WatchESPN App, starting at 10:15 am.
With 13 days to go before Euro 2016, both these teams will be looking to tune-up a few areas, especially in the backline, before the tournament gets going.
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard, who struggled with his form throughout the domestic campaign, looks like he’s finding his touch again at the right time and he starts in the attack alongside the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
Also in the starting team today for Belgium are Mousa Dembele, Dries Mertens and Marouane Fellaini and they are expected to provide some of the support for the front men.
With no Vincent Kompany available, the backline will be led by Thomas Vermaelen and Toby Alderweireld, with Axel Witsel and Jan Vertonghen also starting in defence.
Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois, as expected, gets the starting nod ahead of Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet in goal.
Hazard captains the team today in the absence of Kompany.
Among the players listed on the bench today for the Belgians are Liverpool forwards Divock Origi and Christian Benteke.
Meanwhile, for Switzerland, Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri are expected to provide the bulk of the problems for Belgium, with Eren Derdiyok and Admir Mehmedi also starting as well.
Others starters today for the Swiss team are Philippe Senderos, Johan Djourou, Ricardo Rodriguez, Valon Behrami and Blerim Dzemaili.
