Nine changes made for Switzerland friendly

Nine changes made for Switzerland friendly”

"And I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent.capable and willing to have the ball against any opposition".

As many as nine changes are expected from the side which started the 2-1 Nations League defeat by Spain, with Eric Dier confirmed to captain a team set to feature the likes of Jack Butland, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fabian Delph, James Tarkowski and Danny Welbeck.

Marcus Rashford went into the worldwide break under a cloud, after being red-carded for rashly lowering his head into Phil Bardsley's face during Manchester United's 2-0 win at Burnley, but he emerges from it as one of the few players to have scored points - and the only one to have scored any goals - for England.

Television footage of the players walking out onto the pitch was broadcast in black and white for 25 seconds to mark the 25th anniversary of the anti-racism campaign Kick It Out. "We know how exciting he is and we know he is going to be a top player, he's got a super mentality and he's great to work with".

Gareth Southgate's side sealed a 1-0 victory at the King Power Stadium following Marcus Rashford's goal in the second half.

Defeat against Switzerland would see England lose four games in a row for the first time in their history but the non-competitive outing in Leicester represents a chance to hand the 25-year-old a well-earned breather.

"We didn't get hold of the pivot in the first half so [Granit] Xhaka was always available", he said. "The gaffer had a stern word with us and in the second half it was much better". "We expect and encourage it because they're intelligent footballers and it's important they have a view of what's going on". We kept the ball better after half-time also. And that's the only way we can keep raising the standard'.
