England 1 Switzerland 0: Rashford gets Southgate's men back to winning ways

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

"Harry falls in the category in which we have several players where we have to watch how much they play", said the Three Lions boss.

Gareth Southgate has revealed that Dele Alli missed England's match with Switzerland on Tuesday after a muscle strain suffered during Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Spain in the Uefa Nations League.

"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".

Marcus Rashford got ahead of Alexander-Arnold with the eye on goal, but flashed his effort way off target on 26 minutes.

England's players did not hold back from criticising each other at halftime following a bad start to Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland and defender Danny Rose believes the exchange helped them improve and seal a 1-0 victory. "It was a tall order to ask them to go in and play against a really good side in Switzerland, who are an excellent team". "So numerous lads were playing their first 45 minutes of the season", he said.

England got the new season back on track with their first win of the campaign.

Xherdan Shaqiri hit the outside of the post in the seventh minute after his former Stoke City teammate Jack Butland made two poor passes out from the back.

'It's important they have a view, they are intelligent football players, they should have a view of what's going on.

Southgate said: "I wasn't in there at that moment because we always give them the first three or four minutes to themselves".

The 20-year-old's two goals will put pressure on the injured Raheem Sterling, who was preferred by Southgate in the World Cup starting line-up but is without an worldwide goal in 26 matches.

"We know the performance could have been better". 'We also know that, on Saturday, we could have feasibly ended with a draw which would have looked different as well.

"It is easy for them to be harsh on themselves but Danny has only has had one match this season and we are suffering a physical situation on the back of the World Cup for so numerous players".
