England goals important for Marcus Rashford - Southgate

However, the Three Lions again failed to hit the heights from their World Cup campaign, particularly in a poor first 45 minutes that provoked strong words between the players at half-time.

The game kicks off at 8pm and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

England didn't get off the best start in the first half after making nine changes from their game against Spain, but Southgate made a few tweaks for the second half before Rashford's 54th-minute victor. The Manchester United youngster took advantage of a rare opportunity to play the majority of the game as the central striker in Harry Kane's absence, by scoring the only goal of the game on 54 minutes.

"We gave them a bit too much respect with the ball".

It wasn't until the five minutes of stoppage time that Switzerland looked like getting an equaliser, and even then the finishing was wayward as both Albian Ajeti and Edimilson Fernandes sent shots high and wide of the target when they should have done better. "There was plenty of room for improvement". In the end, we are over the moon to keep a clean sheet and get back to winning ways'. [Xherdan] Shaqiri was also dropping off the front into areas that were a problem and they were overloading in midfield.

"Everyone voiced their opinion and I think we did a lot better in the second half". "Everybody has got to play a part in that but the clubs own the player and they have got to do the right thing for themselves".

"It was quite calm by the time I got in there". We always encourage them to have a voice.

'We want an environment that's demanding.

England return to Nations League action next month, where Spain have certainly set the standard in their group.

While England had an impressive summer campaign at the World Cup, defying all expectations to reach the semi-finals over in Russian Federation, they did so with a relatively young and inexperienced side.

"It's not been a flawless week by any means but we finish with a win, which is important moving forward", said Southgate. It was going to be tough mentally to switch back from the World Cup to these games, physically for all the players, and with two tough games to play. "It wouldn't surprise me if Croatia are having similar difficulties".
