Marcus Rashford pounces to spare England from an unwanted losing record

Marcus Rashford pounces to spare England from an unwanted losing record

It was Rashford's fifth goal for England in 27 matches. In the end, we are over the moon to keep a clean sheet and get back to winning ways'.

Man-of-the-match Danny Rose revealed England held a dressing room inquest during half-time in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over Switzerland.

Gareth Southgate's side were looking to avoid a record fourth straight defeat after losing against Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals, Belgium in the third/fourth-place play-off and in Saturday's Nations League opener against Spain. "We know how exciting he is, we know that he's going to be a top player", he told Sky Sports .

However, the Three Lions again failed to hit the heights from their World Cup campaign, particularly in a poor first 45 minutes that provoked strong words between the players at half-time.

"We expect that, we encourage it". But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress. They recognise when they want to be better.

"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.

Jean, a native of St Lucia, was listed on LinkedIn as a risk assurance experienced associate at PricewaterhouseCoopers. In a related post , his mother said: "My son, I love you". "We hope to bring understanding to the family", she said.

"Before I got in the players were trying to sort things out", he continued.

"We were trying to correct one or two things but also challenge them a bit, it was an important night for us to finish well and we knew it would be hard because of the changes and amount of game time, but I'm really pleased because the players have given everything this week".

'We know the performance could have been better, ' he said.

There was also a standout result in England's Nations League group on Tuesday night as Spain thumped Croatia 6-0 in Alicante.

Southgate did turn to his bench on the hour mark as Harry Kane, Jesse Lingard and John Stones were all introduced, and the latter made an important contribution within minutes when he threw himself in the way of Shaqiri's goalbound effort from inside the box.

"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".
