Gareth Southgate has expressed frustration about Phil Foden's lack of first-team involvement for Manchester City and warned England's senior players they can not expect to keep their places if they are not involved more regularly for their club sides.

Southgate also insists the 20-year-old is further down the line in development terms than fellow striker Kane, who was farmed out on loan four times by Tottenham as a youngster before making the breakthrough at age 21.

"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".

"I'm really pleased for him".

"He's got huge competition for places at his club so you can understand that", Southgate said.

China has experienced violent attacks in public places in recent years, including bombings and arson of buses and buildings. Three attackers also died in the incident, which Beijing blamed on separatists from the restive western region of Xinjiang.

"One of the biggest concerns is playing time for English players - that is shown by a number of the squad who came with us in Russian Federation not getting opportunities", Southgate said in a press conference last month.

"It was important especially to get him in the penalty box and remembering the areas he needs to be scoring goals from".

And Hazard believes that Lukaku's two goals for Belgium on Tuesday night will be good for his confidence as the striker prepares to return to his club. They have a hard job to do and they have big squads in the top six, with huge competition for places.

"Jose thinks the world of Marcus", he said. He's a huge admirer of him, but he has got his job to do. At just 18 years and 141 days, he became the youngest scorer for United in European competition and landmarks and records tumbled after that: scoring on his debut in the Premier League, the Champions League and League Cup, and in his first appearances for the England Under-21s and the England senior team - the youngest player to achieve that.

However, he has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford and will be suspended for United's next three domestic games after being sent off at Burnley before the worldwide break. "Lukaku now looks like one of the best strikers so Rashford may have to move away to then move back to one of the big teams".
