Harry Maguire already looks like an England veteran, says Leicester teammate

England avoided a fourth successive defeat with a 1-0 win over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium but Marcus Rashford's goal was one of the few highlights of a forgettable occasion.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan believes teammate Harry Maguire looks like he has been in the England set-up for years, calling him a "revelation".

Southgate has praised Rashford readily this week, and is keen for the issue of playing time not to overshadow the discussion of Rashford's impressive performances.

Southgate told 5 live: "The players certainly had a lot to say to each other when they first got into the dressing room".

'His confidence will be boosted I'm sure, with two goals against top-quality opposition'.

"We want to have an environment that's demanding because that's the only way we can keep raising the standards".

The security provided by the presence of three central midfielders behind him enabled Shaqiri to roam wherever his little legs wished to carry him, and he popped up all over the pitch in the first half. He still got goals but he's never quite looked like the Harry Kane we know. "He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand [his frustration]". "He's had three days of little training, so half-an-hour was ideal to keep him ticking over".

Southgate defended his decision to send on Harry Kane for the final half-an-hour, despite having warned that the striker could suffer burn-out if he is overplayed. "For me, I was delighted because we really wanted to make him feel important over this period anyway".

"We know the performance could have been better".

Rashford subsequently went to Euro 2016 as England's boy wonder but only played a cameo role in that tournament and was then largely a substitute at this summer's World Cup. 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.

Southgate has lamented England's failure to produce midfielders of the calibre that Croatia and Spain possess.

At the restart, the Swiss returned with a double switch as Admir Mehmedi and Francois Moubandje made their way onto the field of play.
