England vs Switzerland LIVE! Euro 2024 result, match stream, latest reaction and updates after penalties win

England vs Switzerland LIVE!

Jordan Pickford was the shoot-out hero as England kept their Euro 2024 dreams alive by beating Switzerland on penalties to reach the semi-finals. Three years on from being denied the continental crown on spot-kicks, they had to fight their demons from 12 yards to continue their quest to go one better in Germany.

Bukayo Saka cancelled out Breel Embolo's opener to take the quarter-final to extra-time and onto penalties after it ended 1-1, with the England star converting to bury the ghosts of his Euro 2020 final miss. But Pickford was the star as he saved Manuel Akanji's penalty, with Trent Alexander-Arnold wrapping up a 5-3 triumph to spark bedlam in Dusseldorf and seal a semi-final spot.

It was a dramatic end to an edgy encounter and England's first shoot-out win since beating the Swiss in the Nations League third-placed play-off five years ago in Portugal. Pickford was the hero then, just as he was on Saturday night as Gareth Southgate's 100th match ended with a victory that sets up a Dortmund clash against Turkey or the Netherlands on Wednesday.

22:41 , Matt Verri

It has been posited during this European Championship that life might be a bit easier for Gareth Southgate if he did not have such good players. If he managed a team, as with his early England, he could mould into more than the sum of its parts. Like Switzerland, perhaps.

But whatever burden of expectation they have teed-up, and whatever headaches his frighteningly talented, but underperforming crop of attackers have given him this summer, oh how England’s manager must be thankful for them now.

For Jude Bellingham in Gelsenkirchen, read Bukayo Saka in Dusseldorf, golden boy replaced by the star equivalent as saviour and elongater of the Southgate regime.

It was not quite so late, not quite so dramatic, nor even quite so brilliant, but still plenty enough of all three, the Arsenal forward’s stunning equaliser saving England from elimination by the Swiss ten minutes from the end of normal time.

And so then, inevitably, it was penalties, the occasion of Southgate’s landmark 100th game as England manager to be decided the same way as the most infamous of his 57 in the playing ranks.

Semi-final clash confirmed...

21:59 , Matt Verri

The Netherlands have just beaten Turkey to book their place in the semi-final.

England will face the Dutch for a place in the Euro 2024 final, that match taking place on Wednesday night.

Spain vs France in the other last-four showdown.


21:23 , Matt Verri

Truly absurd from Ivan Toney.

All the pressure in the world, and he just strolls up and rolls it into the bottom corner, not looking at the ball once.

Would not even make contact with the ball if I tried that in a quarter-final shootout.

Saka: We can change our lives

20:52 , Matt Verri

Bukayo Saka has been talking about the prospect of this England side making history.

The Three Lions have never won the European Championship - they are still in the hunt to break that duck.

“We know there's two more games until we change our lives and make some history that's never been made before,” Saka said at his press conference

“We're really focussed on that, we're going to enjoy tonight, watch the game to see who we're facing and be ready for that when it comes.”


Kane explains change before shootout

20:46 , Matt Verri

Harry Kane confirmed he will be fit for England’s Euro 2024 semi-final.

Kane had been quiet throughout this match and he came off early in the second period of extra time, replaced by Ivan Toney who went on to score from the spot.

That change after Kane was given a shove by Manuel Akanji and clattered into his manager Gareth Southgate, with the striker struggling to get up and immediately brought off. Speaking after the match, the England captain played down any injury fears.

“I’m fine, I was just tired,” Kane said.

“I had a bit of cramp there, I tripped over the water bottles and both my calves cramped up. The boss made a quick decision, with Ivan a proven penalty taker.

“He came on and did the job.”

More on that here!


Wimbledon delight!

20:30 , Matt Verri

Even the Wimbledon crowd couldn’t keep their discipline when news of this penalty shootout win came through...

England player ratings

20:15 , Matt Verri

Bukayo Saka 9

Dragged England back into the game with a brilliant equaliser. Had Michel Aebischer on toast in the first half, justifying the decision to keep him on the right.

Pinned the Swiss wing-back in his own half and wriggled away from him repeatedly. Ended the debate about moving him to left-back and exorcised the ghost of his penalty miss at Euro 2020 with a cool finish in the shootout.

Harry Kane 4

Looked jaded and was peripheral. Fluffed his one sight at goal – a free header in the first half – and was well marshalled by Akanji.

Is he short of fitness or does he simply need runners beyond him?

Saka delivers for England

19:54 , Matt Verri

He dragged England into extra time, and then stepped up to convert from the penalty spot.

A sensational performance from Bukayo Saka, who has been named player of the match. Fully deserved.

That winning moment!

19:46 , Matt Verri

Trent Alexander-Arnold only came on late in extra time.

But he was as confident as you like, smashed into the corner as Yann Sommer went the wrong way.

19:41 , Matt Verri


Five penalties, five sensational penalties.

England so, so cool and they are into the semi-finals.

England win shootout 5-3!


Here we go. Alexander-Arnold to send England into the semi-finals.


GOAL! England 4-3 Switzerland

19:39 , Matt Verri

Amdouni. Has to score or Switzerland are beaten.

Rolls it in!

GOAL! England 4-2 Switzerland


Toney. Big reason why he’s on the pitch.

That’s why!

Toney converts, England are nearly there.

GOAL! England 3-2 Switzerland

19:37 , Matt Verri

Shaqiri to keep Switzerland in touch.

He does! Really good penalty.

GOAL! England 3-1 Switzerland

19:37 , Matt Verri

Next up for England, Saka.

Takes a long time... but he rolls it into the bottom corner! So cool.

GOAL! England 2-1 Switzerland

19:36 , Matt Verri

Schar for Switzerland.

And he gets them up and running. Switzerland needed that. Badly.

GOAL! England 2-0 Switzerland


Bellingham... makes no mistake!

England in charge of the shootout.

SAVED! England 1-0 Switzerland

19:34 , Matt Verri

Akanji sent up first by Switzerland. Pickford making him wait.


GOAL! England 1-0 Switzerland

19:33 , Matt Verri

Palmer steps up first for England.

And he scores! We’re on the board.

Feels apt...

19:32 , Matt Verri

Really building the atmosphere in Dusseldorf.

19:31 , Matt Verri

England fans are cheering - looks like the shootout will be taking place at that end.

Who will take the five for England?

Toney, Saka, Bellingham, Palmer... Alexander-Arnold? Eze?

FT: England 1-1 Switzerland

19:28 , Matt Verri

No. Penalties.

We’re going to a shootout for a place in the semi-finals.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:27 , Matt Verri

120 mins: One minute added on.

One final chance?

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:26 , Matt Verri

119 mins: Amdouni is on for Switzerland and he’s involved immediately.

Picks up the ball 20 yards out, smashes the effort at goal and Pickford parries it out.

Another ball into the box... Widmer over on the stretch.

England hanging on for dear life.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

19:25 , Matt Verri

This isn't your typical cagey extra-time, where both sides are terrified of losing.

England are still probing for openings with their array of attacking talent but the Swiss have looked dangerous in transition and eager to exploit the space at the back.

Penalties loom but are not a foregone conclusion.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:25 , Matt Verri

117 mins: OFF THE BAR!

What was that?!

Shaqiri straight from the corner, whipped to the near post and it smacks off the woodwork.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:24 , Matt Verri

116 mins: England have given up defending all of a second!

Ball pinged across to Widmer, there are literally no defenders and Pickford briefly comes charging off his line.

Changes his mind, retreats, and Saka gets back in time.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:22 , Matt Verri

115 mins: A final England change.

Foden off, Alexander-Arnold on in his place.

Saka now shifts over to the left wing.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:20 , Matt Verri

113 mins: Switzerland having a good couple of minutes.

Widmer with a low ball into the six-yard box, Shaw gets the first touch and Eze then hammers it clear.

Back Switzerland come, Schar free at the back post and he lashes it miles over the bar.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:19 , Matt Verri

111 mins: Eze on the left, opts not to use Shaw on the overlap and the cross into the middle isn’t great.

Switzerland can break, as Shaqiri shrugs off Bellingham. You heard.

England deal with it though and Palmer then leads a charge of his own, but the door is slammed shut.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:16 , Matt Verri

109 mins: A shove from Akanji and Kane goes flying into the technical area and straight into Southgate.

The England boss tries his best to catch Kane, who looks in a fair bit of pain after that.

Changes from both sides. Shaqiri on for Embolo, while Toney has replaced Kane!

Biiiiig call.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:14 , Matt Verri

107 mins: There go the first couple of minutes, as Kane stays down after a clash of heads with Xhaka.

He’s back up now. Felt like he could have been brought off earlier, but no chance now.

England need him if this goes to a shootout.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

19:12 , Matt Verri

England probably have four of their five best penalty-takers on the field already: Kane, Saka, Palmer and Bellingham.

If it stays like this, Toney seems a likely sub towards the end.

Back underway!

19:12 , Matt Verri

This is it.

Second-half of extra time is underway.

HT in ET: England 1-1 Switzerland

19:10 , Matt Verri

We’ve had 105 minutes... they’re still level.

Another 15 minutes to go, otherwise it’s you know what.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:09 , Matt Verri

104 mins: Ball drops for Foden, he has Saka free to his right and Kane through the middle.

But he doesn’t realise how much time he has, and instead tries a very optimistic flick over his head. Switzerland clear.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:08 , Matt Verri

103 mins: Saka doing his part at both ends of the pitch.

Switzerland on the attack, but Saka gets in front of Zuber and then wins the free-kick for his side.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:06 , Matt Verri

101 mins: England with plenty of numbers up in attack, Foden goes for a tame effort from distance. Blocked.

Bellingham’s turn, from the edge of the area. Just about finds space for the shot, and it’s a routine save for Sommer.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:05 , Matt Verri

100 mins: Schar must be ridiculously close to a red card.

Eze with a great driving run, skipping away from the challenges. It’s another foul from the already-booked Schar, stopping Eze’s charge.

The referee again opts against a second yellow.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

19:03 , Matt Verri

England currently have a back three made up of Stones and two full-backs; Saka and Eze at wing-back; and Bellingham playing next to Rice in midfield.

It's taken a while but you can't say Southgate's team isn't loaded with attacking intent here.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:02 , Matt Verri

97 mins: Palmer trying to make things happen, but that has the strong look of a dive. Referee waves away those very hopeful appeals.

Switzerland lump it up the pitch, Walker very nearly makes an almighty mess of the back pass.

It JUST about has enough to reach Pickford, under pressure from Aebischer.

England 1-1 Switzerland

19:00 , Matt Verri

95 mins: Palmer clips a ball into the box, nobody really there but it comes out to Rice.

He’s 25 yards out, tries his luck and it’s a great effort. Sommer at full stretch to tip it behind.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:59 , Matt Verri

94 mins: Pace of the match has slowed down after a fairly chaotic final 15 minutes of normal time.

Neither side wanting to make a mistake - don’t think we’re getting to get much in the way of chances.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:57 , Matt Verri

92 mins: England stretched, with Eze now playing left wing-back.

Schar in space on that side, but he shanks his first-time ball in and it loops onto the roof of the net.

Back underway!

18:54 , Matt Verri

Here we go then.

Up and running in extra time.

Saka the main man!

18:53 , Matt Verri

Didn’t look like it was going to happen for England, but a moment of magic was enough.

And now, with the likes of Palmer and Eze on the pitch, they need to kick on.

FT: England 1-1 Switzerland

18:50 , Matt Verri

And breathe... for now.

We’re going to extra time in this quarter-final, after Saka’s superb equaliser.

Settle in.


England 1-1 Switzerland

18:49 , Matt Verri

90+2 mins: It’s Switzerland pushing... AND A BIG CHANCE!

Dear me. Schar whips the cross in, there are about three of them free at the back post.

Ndoye is one of them... Embolo’s flick takes it off his head.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:47 , Matt Verri

90+1 mins: We will have... three minutes added on.

If there’s not a winner in that time, we’ll have 30 more.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:46 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Palmer robs Schar, wins England a free-kick out wide. Centre-back already on a yellow card, he needs to be very careful.

Sommer palms away Foden’s ball in, and then deal with Palmer’s cross that follows.

Switzerland break... Nodye blasts over the bar.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:45 , Matt Verri

88 mins: England’s left wing suddenly has a use.

Shaw with a great run on the overlap, it creates the space for Eze to cut inside. Fairly tight angle, goes for the shot and drags it wide.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:44 , Matt Verri

87 mins: Bellingham has space on the edge of the area, should shoot on his left, then on his right... keeps checking back and the chance goes.

Switzerland defence coming under a fair bit of pressure in these closing minutes.

Some strike from Saka!

18:43 , Matt Verri

England desperately needed someone to step up... Saka delivered.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:42 , Matt Verri

85 mins: Widmer booked, he keeps a hold of Palmer as the England man tries to break away.

There’s much, much more pace to England’s play now.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:40 , Matt Verri

83 mins: England on the charge now.

Saka with a cross this time, Kane with the touch and looks to be falling perfectly for Palmer... but Kane goes for the shot himself. Blocked.

England 1-1 Switzerland

18:39 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Now then, what do we have in these final ten minutes?

England have plenty of attackers on the pitch - have to stay on the front foot now.

GOAL! England 1-1 Switzerland | Bukayo Saka 80'

18:37 , Matt Verri


And it’s Saka who steps up for his country.

Just outside the area, cuts onto that left foot and a low strike bounces in off the inside of the post.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

18:36 , Matt Verri

I wouldn't say the goal was exactly coming but Switzerland have been in the ascendency since half-time and have already made two subs while Southgate changed nothing.

He's now calling for the cavalry, with Shaw, Palmer & Eze on for Trippier, Konsa and Mainoo.

England 0-1 Switzerland

18:35 , Matt Verri

78 mins: Palmer, Eze and Shaw all coming on.

Bellingham is one of those coming off... although he seems to be telling them there must be a mistake.

This is a bit of a shambles. It’s in fact Konsa who goes off, the board was wrong. Trippier and Mainoo also off.

England 0-1 Switzerland

18:33 , Matt Verri

77 mins: England with 15 minutes or so to save their campaign. Something needs to drastically change.

And it looks like the subs are FINALLY about to arrive...

GOAL! England 0-1 Switzerland | Bree Embolo 75'

18:31 , Matt Verri


It had been coming. Switzerland attack down their right, ball across the face of goal and Embolo gets there ahead of Walker to tap in at the back post.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:30 , Matt Verri

74 mins: Southgate kept the likes of Bellingham and Kane on last match, and it worked out for him and England in the end.

Not sure you want to be relying on a last-minute overhead kick every match, though....

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:28 , Matt Verri

72 mins: England do finally leave their own half. Foden clips a ball to the back post, nobody there.

Still no shots on target from the Three Lions - this second-half has been a real struggle.

Foden again picks up the ball, tries to pick out Trippier at the back post but there’s no space.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:26 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Momentum is with Switzerland, England continue to drop deep and deeper.

Every player right back in their own half, Kane furthest forward and he’s maybe 15 yards away from the box.

No options for England to get out.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:24 , Matt Verri

68 mins: Kane has been booked, having wrestled with Akanji for the ball.

Very harsh - Akanji maybe got caught slightly as Kane tried to hold it up.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:23 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Rodriguez with the ball in, England make a bit of a mess of clearing it.

Drops for Aebischer... volleyed over.

It’s all Switzerland. A fair few million people around the country currently begging for Southgate to turn to his bench.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

18:20 , Matt Verri

I spent last night thinking how deranged it was that Portugal kept Cristiano Ronaldo on for 120 minutes...and yet Kane has been equally ineffective so far.

A growing case for Southgate to introduce Watkins or Toney to give England more presence and energy up top.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:20 , Matt Verri

63 mins: Two Switzerland changes.

Vargas and Rieder coming off, Zuber and Widmer introduced.

Nothing yet from the England bench...

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:18 , Matt Verri

62 mins: Kane is dropping back into midfield, England can’t get out.

Switzerland dominating possession, it’s their best spell of the match. Pressure building on the England defence.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:17 , Matt Verri

61 mins: And another corner, as Saka flicks a header behind.

Fired to the near post, not a good ball in and England can push back up the pitch.

Malik Ouzia at Dusseldorf Arena

18:16 , Matt Verri

It's been a much more even game since half-time.

Credit to the Swiss, who will no doubt have been surprised by England's set-up and have reacted at half-time.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:16 , Matt Verri

59 mins: Ndoye away down the right, suddenly all sorts of space in attack for Switzerland.

England just about slow things down enough, but they do concede the corner.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:13 , Matt Verri

56 mins: Throw-in to Kane, who can’t hold it up and then gives away a cheap free-kick.

He hasn’t been involved at all, not for the first time this tournament. Southgate has to be thinking about Toney or Watkins.

Switzerland whip a dangerous ball in, Embolo at the back post and Konsa does superbly to stop him getting a header at goal.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

18:11 , Matt Verri

Wonder how many minutes Southgate feels Luke Shaw has in his legs.

If England could add a genuine threat down the left to Saka's good work on the right, they would be much harder to contain.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:10 , Matt Verri

54 mins: Konsa was holding his knee after getting tight to Embolo for that shot, but he’s fine to continue.

And he then wins a free-kick, as Konsa and Embolo continue to enjoy each other’s company.

Impressive from the Aston Villa man so far, having come in to replace Guehi.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:08 , Matt Verri

51 mins: A shot on target! Spoiling us.

Embolo again holds up the ball in the box, strong enough to swivel and gets his shot away. Takes a slight flick off Konsa but straight at Pickford.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:06 , Matt Verri

50 mins: Vargas has stayed down, after he got caught from behind by Walker.

Just a warning from the referee. Switzerland man is back up on his feet, not moving particularly well.

England 0-0 Switzerland

18:04 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Positive start to the half from England.

Bellingham with the sharp turn on halfway and he drives all the way into the box... can’t quite pick out Kane.

England stay on the front foot, Saka with the shot in the area and it’s charged down.

Back underway!

18:02 , Matt Verri

Right then. Second-half is up and running.

Good day to be a goalkeeper!

17:57 , Matt Verri

Nothing to worry Jordan Pickford or Yann Sommer yet.

Both quarter-finals yesterday went to extra-time, and the France vs Portugal match needed a penalty shootout.

Would not be surprised if we went beyond 90 minutes here.

As close as England came...

17:53 , Matt Verri

Here is that threat that Bukayo Saka is offering.

Ball very nearly fell for Kobbie Mainoo, but Granit Xhaka read the situation perfectly.

That was the most threatening moment either side have had.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

17:50 , Matt Verri

England are definitely improved but still struggling to carve out clear chances.

Saka has Aebischer on toast, justifying the decision to keep him on the right, but Trippier's left-flank is still impotent.

Foden has been more involved, and Mainoo is probably England's standout player.

Kane quiet but cutting off Xhaka supply lines cannily.

HT: England 0-0 Switzerland

17:47 , Matt Verri

No stoppage-time, that’ll do it for the first-half.

It’s been a very even 45 minutes, but England much better than we’ve seen in the last couple of matches.

Switzerland haven’t been able to offer much in attack at all.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:46 , Matt Verri

45 mins: What a tackle that is!

Saka skips past Aebischer on the outside, gets to the byline and just about pulls it back.

Mainoo looks certain to smash it in from close range, but Xhaka throws himself in the way.

Corner swung in this time... Sommer claims.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:44 , Matt Verri

43 mins: Saka does look capable of making something happen.

Drifts inside slightly, gets the shot away from just outside the box. Xhaka is swiftly there, though, and Schar completes the clearing job.

Fair to say Xhaka has seen enough of that Saka left foot to know what’s going to happen.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:41 , Matt Verri

41 mins: Rice very nearly caught on the ball, just about gets it away in time.

He moves towards the left, almost runs into Trippier, who is pointing wildly for Rice to go the other way.

That probably sums up England’s left wing.

Malik Ouzia at Dusseldorf Arena

17:39 , Matt Verri

It's not like Switzerland have been clinging on or anything here.

But when you think of the way they dominated Italy in the first-half of their last game, England have done well to just about edge it.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:38 , Matt Verri

37 mins: We still haven’t had a shot on target in this match.

Or really even a chance. A few blocked shots is all the two teams have managed between them.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

17:36 , Matt Verri

Twice Mainoo has driven England forward with a surging run from deep, although there has not always been compelling options ahead of him.

England still yet to click in the final third but the change in system has undoubtedly improved their build-up play.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:35 , Matt Verri

35 mins: Brilliant from Mainoo, turns in midfield and drives into space, all the way to within five yards of the Switzerland box.

Slides it to Trippier, who for a change has to take a touch back onto his right foot before putting the cross in.

Freuler charges it down with his arms high in the air, would have been good work on a rugby pitch.

Somehow, it’s not a free-kick on this one.

England 0-0 Switzerland


32 mins: Think it’s fair to say we’re not going to be getting a 4-3 or anything like that here.

Nothing at all between the two sides so far - it’s very, very tight.

Bellingham suddenly kicks things into gear, bursting away down the left and Schar is booked as he hauls the England star down.

Malik Ouzia at Dusseldorf Arena

17:31 , Matt Verri

The bar is very, very low but this has been England's best half-an-hour since the opening game against Serbia.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:31 , Matt Verri

30 mins: Corner for England, as Bellingham waits a couple of times before eventually clipping a cross in. Nodded behind.

Trippier to take, short to Saka. Worked to the halfway line... and back to Pickford.

That was woeful.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:29 , Matt Verri

Two or three times now England players have delivered low crosses into the heart of the box and no one has made the run across the Swiss defender.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:28 , Matt Verri

28 mins: “Bit of improvement” is Alan Shearer’s analysis of England’s performance so far.

Think that’s maybe a tad harsh, there has been much more urgency from the Three Lions.

That left wing still isn’t really doing anything, though. All on Saka down the right.

Malik Ouzia at Dusseldorf Arena

17:27 , Matt Verri

Declan Rice has started really well here.

He looks sharper in his reading of the game and has nipped in smartly on a few occasions already.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:26 , Matt Verri

26 mins: Mainoo just outside his own box, surrounded by three Switzerland players and he is very grateful to hear the whistle.

Xhaka it was who closed him down - Mainoo maybe a fortunate to get that decision.

England 0-0 Switzerland

17:25 , Matt Verri

25 mins: England pressing right up from the goal-kick.

Foden charges towards Akanji, who lays it off to Sommer and he is rushed as he clips it away.

Switzerland keep hold of the ball, though, and work it up the other end. Embolo in the box, gets a shot away on the swivel. Blocked.

Malik Ouzia at Dusseldorf Arena

17:24 , Matt Verri

The thing about keeping Saka on the right is that he has much more attacking licence with Kyle Walker behind him than he would if he were playing on the left in front of Ezri Konsa.

When England attack, he's pretty much in the same position as he has been when playing on the right wing.

Dan Kilpatrick at Dusseldorf Arena

17:23 , Matt Verri

England are definitely livelier and more assertive with the ball than in any of their previous matches, but they have been a little ragged out of possession.

Positives and negatives from this hybrid system so far for Gareth Southgate
