England boss Gareth Southgate reviews win over Switzerland

England's worst ever players: Michael Ricketts, Scott Carson, Jon Flanagan and more

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

Behind them, manager Gareth Southgate's squad contained only five midfielders.

Rashford, 20, scored for the second consecutive game in a Three Lions short on Tuesday evening as Southgate's England triumphed 1-0 over Switzerland in an worldwide friendly at Leicester City's King Power Stadium. Clearly ill at ease with the ball at his feet, the Stoke man nearly passed the ball into his own net in the sixth minute and his under-hit pass to James Tarkowski seconds later culminated in Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the post for the visitors. "It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did".

"Some of the stepovers and things Ronaldo was doing at that age, he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have got to give him time to develop".

England struggled to get Loftus-Cheek on the ball in risky positions in the first half and when they did, he was unable to do much with it, often showing an inability to turn when presented with the ball with his back to goal. 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. The first half was quite predictable really.

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

White House adviser admits Trump got his facts wrong in economy tweet
That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased more than 30 percent since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016. The White House has previously disseminated false statistics in an attempt to bolster Trump's record on jobs and the economy.

"To get two goals this week, two really good finishes, is really important for him".

Leicester have had a solid start to the season, winning two of their first four games, sandwiched between an away loss to Manchester United and a home defeat to Liverpool, going down 2-1 on both occasions.

When asked to stack up England's most talented players against the likes of Spain's Andres Iniesta, Xavi and David Silva, Southgate said: "The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent".

'If he didn't play today, he would have gone out and done some running on the pitch.

So, take a look at the slideshow above to see which players we feel were fortunate to wear the three lions as one of England's elite.
