Swiss goalkeeper Marco Wolfli has his sights firmly on revenge when he lines up against England on Tuesday.

Switzerland host England in Basel, and the Young Boys ace will be in goal for Ottmar Hitzfeld's side as they open their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

But Wolfli is still reeling from Young Boys' UEFA Champions League defeat to Tottenham, and he sees Tuesday as the ideal opportunity to gain some revenge.

"This match is very special to me personally because after that game at Tottenham I want my sporting revenge - and to beat England," he told The People.

"I dream of this happening and I do not fear England, even after their win against Bulgaria.

"Remember, we are at home for this match and we dream of playing at the European finals.

"So we want to make an early impression.

"Even if Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe play, I am calm. I just want to get rid of the memories I have with Young Boys."

Wolfli is also hopeful Switzerland will be able to stop England from finishing top of their qualifying group.

"We want to fight for first position in this group, not second," he said.

"We know people look at England as favourites to reach Poland and Ukraine but we need to make our home a fortress and to keep the group open."
