Rose reveals angry halftime exchange between England players

Rose reveals angry halftime exchange between England players

Dele Alli has withdrawn from the England squad ahead of the Three Lions' friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday after picking up a muscle strain during the 2-1 defeat to Spain.

After an exciting summer of World Cup action and a creditable narrow defeat to Spain in their opening UEFA Nations League game over the weekend, "dull worldwide friendly" service resumed for Gareth Southgate's England as they took on Switzerland at the King Power Stadium.

Marcus Rashford went into the worldwide break under a cloud, after being red-carded for rashly lowering his head into Phil Bardsley's face during Manchester United's 2-0 win at Burnley, but he emerges from it as one of the few players to have scored points - and the only one to have scored any goals - for England.

Although, the Swiss got a big chance to punish them for poor defending but Xherdan Shaqiri shot wide from a one-on-one position with an on-rushing Jack Butland on six minutes.

"He is a special talent", the England manager said.

"He would have been a bit disappointed about the amount of time he had at the World Cup, but it was important especially to get him in the penalty box and remembering the areas he needs to be scoring goals from, and so his confidence will be boosted I'm sure, two goals against top-quality opposition in both games".

"We could have been two or three-nil down at half-time", admitted Rose, who was man-of-the-match.

"His first season was last season and he had a fantastic season, he got the player of the year award and he rightly deserved that as well".

Southgate's concerns extend to Foden's restricted time on the pitch for City, with the 18-year-old limited to one substitute appearance, of eight minutes, this season. He's had three days of little training.

After the latest in a long succession of major tournament disappointments, Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic is attempting to give his side a makeover.

If England lose against Switzerland, it will be the nation's longest ever run of losses. England generally prevented him from taking up unsafe positions, but he came close to breaking the deadlock early on after Gavranovic robbed Tarkowski on the edge of the box.
