Global friendly match report England v Switzerland 11 September 2018

England manager Gareth Southgate has said former teammate Paul Gascoigne offered to play against Switzerland as the pair caught up before the global friendly.

England avoided a fourth successive defeat with a 1-0 win over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium but Marcus Rashford's goal was one of the few highlights of a forgettable occasion.

Having had little time to impress in a Man United shirt this season, Rashford has taken the opportunity of the worldwide break to remind English football fans of his talent.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate believes the Manchester United youngster is a "special talent" and has likened him to the Juventus and Portugal star, even pointing out that the 20-year-old is better in front of goal than Ronaldo was at that tender age.

Eric Dier will captain a side that is likely to include goalkeeper Jack Butland, defenders James Tarkowski, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose, midfielders Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fabian Delph, plus striker Danny Welbeck.

"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".

"I'm really pleased for him".

'Marcus has got huge competition for places at his club so you can understand that.

Southgate's concerns extend to Foden's restricted time on the pitch for City, with the 18-year-old limited to one substitute appearance, of eight minutes, this season.

"I thought this is a good opportunity to do it", Southgate said on Monday. But actually if I am Pep I have other players, senior players, who I have to get up to speed because they haven't had many minutes.

Daily Telegraph columnist Jamie Carragher made the point that Rashford has the most hard of tasks at United - a young player coming through as a striker at a big club. "So numerous lads were playing their first 45 minutes of the season", he said. But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress. To start the game is a different sort of feel, mentally it's different'.
