England players rip into each other during heated half-time inquest against Switzerland

England players rip into each other during heated half-time inquest against Switzerland

England fans have had to sit through some turgid friendlies during the past couple of decades, ruined largely by what felt like endless substitutions.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has developed further as a player than Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane had when they were the same age, according to England manager Gareth Southgate.

Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half victor as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in an global friendly on Tuesday.

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

Come on, the Three Lions did reach the last four regardless. He had left [Riyad] Mahrez out of the team, so he needed to get him on because he [Mahrez] is still adapting to the way of playing. They say players get paid so much money, they need to play every week and what are they moaning about.

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. They dug in through that tough period and we were able to make some tactical changes at half-time and put some physically sharper players on. "He's had three days of little training, so half-an-hour was ideal to keep him ticking over".

Switzerland looked impressively assured on the ball, managing to find space in midfield in a manner that generally proved beyond England, and saw 65 percent of possession in the first half.

Comparisons with Kane and Ronaldo are possibly over the top but, in essence, Southgate is correct.

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

Speaking after the game, Southgate said: 'I think he's going to get matches at his club.

Rashford subsequently went to Euro 2016 as England's boy wonder but only played a cameo role in that tournament and was then largely a substitute at this summer's World Cup. Also, we wanted to finish the game strongly. "We had a real jigsaw of minutes to piece together, when to put people on or take them off, and we've got them through the game".
