Guehi and Walker-Peters to make England debuts vs Switzerland

Marc Guehi and Kyle Walker-Peters are set to make their England debuts against Switzerland, with the pair expected to be in the starting line-up for Saturday's match at Wembley.

The duo both earned their first call-ups for the two home international friendlies against Switzerland on Saturday and Ivory Coast on Tuesday.

Southampton right-back Walker-Peters was only called up on Monday following a number of withdrawals from Gareth Southgate's squad, including full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James through injury.

The 24-year-old, who is a 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup-winner and has amassed caps from U18 through to U21 level for England, was widely expected to feature as he is the only fit right-back currently in the squad.

Crystal Palace centre-back Guehi, who was named in the original 25-man squad, is also set to start having impressed Southgate in his debut Premier League season.
