A more positive start to the second period for the hosts was rewarded with the only goal on 54 minutes when Kyle Walker's hanging cross to the back post was swept home by Rashford for his fifth worldwide goal.

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 global football.

"We could have been two or three nil down at half-time", said England full-back Danny Rose.

"We were very keen that he had the opportunity, we were determined to give him some match minutes", said Southgate. It was a bit embarrassing, we could have been two or three down. "It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did".

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire added: "There were a few words spoken between the boys".

"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".

Rose has struggled for form and fitness over the past year but is hopeful his niggles are behind him and he can take an impressive vein of form into club matches with Tottenham.

"I think what is happening at junior level is that there is more emphasis on technical ability".

The 25-year-old has also had only one summer off over the past four years having featured for England at the 2016 European Championships and the 2018 World Cup as well as for the U21s in the Euro's back in 2015.

"It was a short break with no preseason and everybody was back earlier than I am sure everybody would have expected for club matches, although that is entirely understandable", Southgate told reporters on Monday. I was at the Manchester City versus Huddersfield game and you think, 'well ok, it is a game where Foden will play'.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate will be eager for his side to bounce back from defeats to Croatia, Belgium and Spain in their past three fixtures.
