England vs. Switzerland: Harry Kane rested, Eric Dier to be captain

8th September 2018 Wembley Stadium London England UEFA Nations League football England versus Spain Dele Alli of England

Walker picked up an overhit corner on the right flank and subsequently delivered a pinpoint deep cross of his own, picking out Rashford who controlled a cushioned volley past Sommer from close range to score in back-to-back England games for the first time.

The Three Lions are now on a three-match losing streak, and have never lost four matches in a row.

"Everyone voiced their opinion and I think we did a lot better in the second half". Following Luke Shaw's similarly encouraging showing against Spain and with Walker, Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold as options on the other side, wing-back is one position where Southgate does not lack for elite talent. We always encourage them to have a voice. "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". Then we have to make sure that doesn't boil over.

After being pegged back, Switzerland struggled to reimburse the first half dominance that almost saw them surge ahead.

The Football Association has plans to take the national side around the country. "It was a tall order to ask them to go in and play against a really good side in Switzerland, who are an excellent team".

"We also had a tactical issue dealing with Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka going so deep, which meant even more running for lads getting their first game of the season".

"Their movement was really good, they kept the ball really well and we had to chase too much [in the first half]". Today, they were harsh on themselves.

Switzerland opened its UEFA Nations League campaign with a 6-0 win against Iceland. It's important as a group to get a win against a top10 team.

We know all about the influx of foreign players into the Premier League and how the selection pool is becoming ever smaller to pick from.
