Following England’s defeat to Holland in Portugal last night the Three Lions will be heading back to Guimarães on Sunday to take on Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League.

Our Free Lions Fans’ Embassy will once again be on hand to assist travelling England fans and have produced another useful fanzine for those of you heading to the match.

We’ll be based in Guimarães on match day between 10 am and noon at Largo do Toural. On the day before the game, we’ll be based both in Guimarães at Largo do Toural, between around 1pm and 5pm, and also in Porto at similar times, working from Alfandega to Ribeira on the north bank of the Douro river. So come along and pick up a hard copy of Free Lions 167.

In the meantime, keep up to date by following Free Lions on Twitter @FSF_FreeLions and the Free Lions facebook page.
