       Harry Maguire is relishing the future with Leicester

Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half victor as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in an worldwide friendly on Tuesday.

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus", Southgate said.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is arguably developing faster than Cristiano Ronaldo did, according to England manager Gareth Southgate. He's had three days of little training.

But the 20-year-old has battled for starts at United, making just one so far this season, while he was sent off against Burnley earlier this month. Since 2015 he has played 175 matches and he's struggling. Leicester City's Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray have been promoted from the under 21s for Tuesday night's friendly with Switzerland and the pair have limited Premier League experience, though Southgate is truly down to the bare bones - so much so that there is no replacement for the newly-injured Dele Alli. I think they might, at the beginning, let Tottenham come at them a little bit, give them a bit of respect, which is right because Tottenham's home record was great a year ago.

Rashford scored in both of England's matches in September, and the 20-year-old was compared favourably to 2018 World Cup Golden Boot victor Kane and five-time Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo by his worldwide boss.


'He's a huge admirer of him, but he has got his job to do. He had left [Riyad] Mahrez out of the team, so he needed to get him on because he [Mahrez] is still adapting to the way of playing. I don't think he should have been here for the two weeks.

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus".

The Three Lions boss added: "I am delighted because we really wanted to make him feel important over this period". But it was quite calm by the time we got in there.

Speaking after the game, Southgate said: 'I think he's going to get matches at his club.

'If he didn't play today, he would have gone out and done some running on the pitch.
