The Three Lions boss takes a call during training on Sunday morning

"It's not been a ideal week by any means but we finish with a win, which is important moving forward", said Southgate.

It's fair to say Rashford enjoys England's games on the road.

After being pegged back, Switzerland struggled to reimburse the first half dominance that almost saw them surge ahead.

While both sides will feel they could've been ahead at the break, it was Switzerland's Yann Sommer who was the busier of the two goalkeepers. There was definitely a lot of room for improvement.

The two teams could have met in the quarter-finals in Russian Federation had the Swiss not limped out of the competition with a whimper to Sweden in the last 16. Following Luke Shaw's similarly encouraging showing against Spain and with Walker, Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold as options on the other side, wing-back is one position where Southgate does not lack for elite talent.

The victory is England's first since the World Cup quarter-final, and also only Switzerland's third defeat from their last 23 outings across all competitions.

That saga ended with a Friday night announcement in late August, in which Musk said Tesla would remain a publicly traded company. He added that he still believed in Tesla , that "I have no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or its financial reporting".

As many as nine changes are expected from the side which started the 2-1 Nations League defeat by Spain, with Eric Dier confirmed to captain a team set to feature the likes of Jack Butland, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fabian Delph, James Tarkowski and Danny Welbeck. 'It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did.

The opening goal arrived 10 minutes into the second half as Kyle Walker's impressive cross found Rashford, who had the simple task of slotting home from six-yards out. Clearly ill at ease with the ball at his feet, the Stoke man nearly passed the ball into his own net in the sixth minute and his under-hit pass to James Tarkowski seconds later culminated in Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the post for the visitors.

Switzerland looked impressively assured on the ball, managing to find space in midfield in a manner that generally proved beyond England, and saw 65 percent of possession in the first half.

In what was a thoroughly tiresome match, Rashford livened things up temporarily by scoring in the 54th minute at the King Power Stadium - the only goal of the game.

Renowned for his defensive steel, John Stones was quickly into the thick of things, preventing Shaqiri from finding the net from close range.
