England fans react on Twitter to Eric Dier's performance v Switzerland

Kane has appeared sluggish and off the pace since returning from an ankle injury sustained against Bournemouth in March and Neville expressed his surprise that Gareth Southgate made a decision to use him as a second half substitute during England's 1-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday.

"We could have been two or three-nil down at halftime", Tottenham Hotspur's Rose told BBC Radio 5 live. They recognise when they want to be better.

Southgate insisted after being outplayed for the majority of a 2-1 defeat by Spain in his side's inaugural Nations League encounter on Saturday that England must persist with his intention to improve on playing out from the back under pressure.

However, the second half saw a notable improvement in the team's urgency and Marcus Rashford managed to grab the only goal of the game from Kyle Walker's 54th-minute cross.

"We always give them the first three or four minutes to themselves".

"So numerous lads were playing their first 45 minutes of the season", said the England manager.




Walker picked up an overhit corner on the right flank and subsequently delivered a pinpoint deep cross of his own, picking out Rashford who controlled a cushioned volley past Sommer from close range to score in back-to-back England games for the first time. A combination of the two meant we got a good response in the second half.

After being pegged back, Switzerland struggled to reimburse the first half dominance that almost saw them surge ahead. I think there is a welfare thing in terms of looking after players.

"We expect and encourage it because they're intelligent footballers and it's important they have a view".

Gareth Southgate has said that England have only produced one World Class midfielder in the last half-a-century - Paul Gascoigne. The slickness of their passing did not translate into goal chances, but after their rout of Iceland, the spring in their step augurs well for next month's testing trip to Belgium in the Nations League.

"We could see how good a side Spain were at the weekend", he said.
