Rose reveals angry halftime exchange between England players

Harry Kane- Harry Kane is due a rest – he's tired admits England manager Gareth Soutgate ahead of Switzerland friendly

Among the starters looking to stake a claim for a regular berth up front was Marcus Rashford, who was paired up top with Danny Welbeck. Loftus-Cheek, who has become the canary in the mine for England's youth development pathway, had played only 33 minutes for Chelsea this season prior to kickoff, while Delph was making his first appearance of the campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane, who won the Golden Boot at this year's World Cup with six goals, has started 61 matches in all competitions since the start of last season.

Southgate insisted after being outplayed for the majority of a 2-1 defeat by Spain in his side's inaugural Nations League encounter on Saturday that England must persist with his intention to improve on playing out from the back under pressure.

"I was delighted [with Rashford] because we really wanted to make him feel important over this period", Southgate said.

Jordan Pickford's superior ability on the ball will surely see him return to the number one jersey in next month's UEFA Nations League double-header with Croatia and Spain. "We are hoping that now we have given them some minutes they will go back to their club better prepared for when they get their opportunity and it gives them a better chance of staying in the team". And this resulted in many players taking home the prized cap, while how deserving they were of then being branded an "England international" has been open to great debate.

"I'm really pleased for him more than anything", he added.

"We are going to have to assess that each time".

Southgate's concerns extend to Foden's restricted time on the pitch for City, with the 18-year-old limited to one substitute appearance, of eight minutes, this season.

"I still have to be fit, strong, train well and play well".

Rashford aside, Danny Rose also caught the eye on England's left flank before giving way to local favourite Ben Chilwell, who made his global debut.

"The players certainly had a lot to say to each other when they first got into the dressing room".
