England’s first-half performance was ‘embarrassing’ says Danny Rose

The Three Lions boss takes a call during training on Sunday morning

England captain Harry Kane will be left out of tonight's worldwide friendly match against Switzerland in Leicester.

Three quick thoughts from England's 1-0 friendly win over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday. "It was a bit embarrassing, we could have been two or three down".

The 20-year-old was England's goal scorer in their 2-1 loss to Spain in their Nations League opener at Wembley, and he was the match-winner for Gareth Southgate's men against Switzerland, ghosting in at the back post to apply a crisp volleyed finish to Kyle Walker's deep cross in the 54th minute.

Rashford's strike put some gloss on what was a less-than-convincing performance by the World Cup semifinalists, which was typified by the jitters of goalkeeper Jack Butland. It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other it's not good enough.

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. "The second half wasn't fantastic, but it was better than the first and we're over the moon we got the win".

"He's going to be going back into matches at his club", said Southgate. 'I wasn't in there at that moment, ' he said.

But we can see there's a period of time for those players to come through". I thought Dele's performance was good against Spain.

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.

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.

"We expect and encourage it because they're intelligent footballers and it's important they have a view".

Southgate also praised his players for the way they attempted to rectify their own problems themselves at the break in Leicester.

However, the Spurs coach won't want to rush him back too soon as Tottenham face a tough trip to Italy to take on Inter Milan in their first Champions League group stage game next Tuesday.

"It was quite calm by the time I got in there".
