England reaped the benefits of a tactical tweak from Southgate at the interval after Switzerland controlled long periods of the first half. "It was important then that we solved a couple of the problems they were facing and kept things calm", Southgate said.

'All of us weren't happy with the performance at half-time, gave them a little bit too much respect with the ball.

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.

"Normally we have not got opposing objectives and the clubs would be holding their breath and hiding behind their sofas watching our teams go out".
