But Spurs now don't have a fully rested up striker, as Southgate chose to play him in a friendly, which Pochettino may feel was an unnecessary risk from the England boss.

Leicester: England manager Gareth Southgate recognised his side have vast room for improvement despite bouncing back from three consecutive defeats as a much-changed team edged past Switzerland for a 1-0 friendly win thanks to Marcus Rashford's victor.

England manager Gareth Southgate has said former teammate Paul Gascoigne offered to play against Switzerland as the pair caught up before the worldwide friendly.

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. "So numerous lads were playing their first 45 minutes of the season", he said. "We think it is important to keep encouraging him to keep running in behind teams with the pace he's got as well".

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.


So, take a look at the slideshow above to see which players we feel were fortunate to wear the three lions as one of England's elite. The 20-year-old is set to score this season for the club and was sent off last time out against Burnley.

It was his second goal in two games for the England team. Loftus-Cheek is a serious talent but thus far the 22-year-old has made just two appearances as a substitute at Chelsea this season.

If England lose against Switzerland, it will be the nation's longest ever run of losses.

Why is England vs Switzerland at King Power Stadium?

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. The slickness of their passing did not translate into goal chances, but after their rout of Iceland, the spring in their step augurs well for next month's testing trip to Belgium in the Nations League.
