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