       Harry Maguire is relishing the future with Leicester

Former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville insists that Harry Kane should have been rested for the recent internationals with Spain and Switzerland.

"Even if some of those other top players who have broken into the team, some of the step-overs and things Ronaldo was doing at that age, but he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have got to give him time to develop". Delph offered little forward thrust either, meaning that it was often left to Rashford to take the initiative by turning and running at the Swiss back three.

Marcus Rashford is ahead of where Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane were at his age - but needs to be made to feel "important". 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.

On England ending their losing run, Southgate added: "I have a feeling we might be sitting here next month talking about a fourth competitive defeat before the next match". It was his second goal in two games for the England team.

Southgate also reserved praise for Rashford, who built on his goal against Spain at the weekend with a tidy finish to win Tuesday's game after what has been a frustrating start to the season for the Manchester United youngster.

There was a welfare thing for me in terms of looking after players and he's not had enough break now since 2015.

"He's got huge competition for places at his club so you can understand that", Southgate said. "He's a huge admirer of him, but he's got his job to do", Southgate maintained. However, Southgate floated the idea of trying to fit all three into the same side, an idea that would probably mean Sterling switching to another position.

"His confidence will be boosted with two goals against top-quality opposition". But it was quite calm by the time we got in there.

When asked to stack up England's most talented players against the likes of Spain's Andres Iniesta, Xavi and David Silva, Southgate said: "The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent".
