Marcus Rashford proves his worth, leading patchy England to win over Swiss

'It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did.

The Three Lions went into the dressing room level at 0-0 after a lacklustre first half of their friendly against the Swiss.

The Three Lions were pushing for a return to winning ways after losing 2-1 to Spain over the weekend, while Switzerland thumped Iceland 6-0 in their UEFA Nations League opener.

"We spoke at half-time and we weren't happy with how we were playing, but we took control after the break and got the goal".

It was Rashford's fifth goal for England in 27 matches.

We'll have to wait and see whether Alli manages to recover in time for the visit of Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime but it would be a huge blow for Tottenham if he's ruled out for any period of time.

Harry Maguire and Danny Rose have admitted that there were heated words between the England players in the dressing room during friendly with Switzerland on Tuesday evening.

"It was a tall order to ask them to play against an excellent Switzerland side, they kept the ball well and we had to chase too much".

England struggled to get Loftus-Cheek on the ball in unsafe positions in the first half and when they did, he was unable to do much with it, often showing an inability to turn when presented with the ball with his back to goal.

Although, the Swiss got a big chance to punish them for poor defending but Xherdan Shaqiri shot wide from a one-on-one position with an on-rushing Jack Butland on six minutes.

"We know the performance could have been better".

"We expect and encourage it because they're intelligent footballers and it's important they have a view".

Southgate said: "I wasn't in there at that moment because we always give them the first three or four minutes to themselves". 'We also know that, on Saturday, we could have feasibly ended with a draw which would have looked different as well. "I think for the teams that went towards the end of the World Cup it's a really hard period because so many players have missed pre-season and you're not really sure what physical condition they're in".
