England vs. Switzerland: Harry Kane rested, Eric Dier to be captain

Dejection for England and Dele Alli after Spain's second goal during the UEFA Nations League A group four match between England and Spain at Wembley Stadium

England didn't get off the best start in the first half after making nine changes from their game against Spain, but Southgate made a few tweaks for the second half before Rashford's 54th-minute victor.

Three quick thoughts from England's 1-0 friendly win over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday. "The second half wasn't unbelievable, but it was better than the first and we're over the moon we got the win".

Marcus Rashford scored in consecutive matches for the first time in his global career as England returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Switzerland in Leicester.

England's lack of quality in the middle of the park was highlighted on Saturday night when former World Champions Spain brought their riches of midfield talent to Wembley to dominate England in their UEFA Nations League opener.

Operating in support of Danny Welbeck at the sharp end of a 3-5-2 system, Rashford was England's liveliest player throughout, and looked their most likely source of a goal even before he netted for the fifth time in worldwide football. "We were outplayed", said Rose, who was one of England's better performers. The Manchester United youngster took advantage of a rare opportunity to play the majority of the game as the central striker in Harry Kane's absence, by scoring the only goal of the game on 54 minutes.

The famously mild-mannered Southgate was similarly unimpressed, according to centre-back Harry Maguire.

Nadal injury sends del Potro to U.S. Open final
Del Potro, whose own injury troubles have been well-documented, will therefore get a chance to repeat his 2009 triumph in NY . Nadal showed signs of distress nearly from the start as he limped noticeably after a gruelling 69-minute opening set.

"We expect that, we encourage it".

'It's important they have a view, they are intelligent football players, they should have a view of what's going on. But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress.

"We gave them a bit too much respect with the ball. For the teams who went towards the end of the finals it's a really hard period", he added.

After being pegged back, Switzerland struggled to reimburse the first half dominance that almost saw them surge ahead.

"It was quite calm by the time I got in there".

With many feeling the pair were unfairly overlooked when Southgate first named his England squad, fans on Twitter were excited to see both Gray and Chilwell get their first senior call-ups.
