England last played Switzerland in a qualifier for Euro 2016 in September 2015, when goals from Harry Kane and Wayne Rooney settled a 2-0 win for the hosts.

The US team, which failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Russia, last travelled to England in May 2008 when they suffered a 0-2 defeat, with goals from John Terry and Steven Gerrard.

Gareth Southgate’s England will also feature in the inaugural UEFA Nations League programme, which gets underway with a home match against Spain at Wembley on 8 September.

The Three Lions will then travel to Croatia on 12 October before a return trip to Spain on 15 October.

Following their meeting with the US, the 2018 calendar will conclude with Croatia at Wembley on 18 November.
