England returned to winning ways with a narrow 1-0 victory over Switzerland in an global friendly on Tuesday.

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

England full-back Danny Rose has admitted that his side's first-half performance during this evening's worldwide friendly with Switzerland was "embarrassing".

Southgate could make up to nine changes from the team that started England's Nations League campaign with a 2-1 defeat by Spain at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

But if we are in a similar situation next month - three weeks into the season is one thing, but seven weeks and they have not played?

"In the end, we are over the moon to keep a clean sheet and get back to winning ways".

With their rendition of Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again" in tribute to Gareth Southgate on loop for nearly the entire game, Rashford's goal was a rare moment of respite.

He almost scuffed a pass into his own goal when trying to find Harry Maguire, and then played James Tarkowski into trouble, presenting Xherdan Shaqiri with an opportunity that he spurned.

Although Kane top-scored at the World Cup with six goals and has two from four games in the Premier League this season, there have been question marks over his overall levels of performance with some pundits suggesting that his drop in shot attempts per game highlights his fatigue.

"We had a tactical problem to sort out and so many lads playing their first 45 minutes of the season", he added of the first-half display. It's important they feel close enough that they can get on to each other.

Rashford has failed to do that too often at Old Trafford.

Although Loftus-Cheek did manage to work Sommer with a deflected effort from the edge of the box, by the time he made way for Lingard in the 62nd minute, he had done little to advance his cause.

The security provided by the presence of three central midfielders behind him enabled Shaqiri to roam wherever his little legs wished to carry him, and he popped up all over the pitch in the first half.
