Luke Shaw will also be unavailable to Southgate after suffering a concussion in the Uefa Nations League match, his first start for the Three Lions in three years.

'Our first half performance was embarrassing but it's great we can shout at each other to change things, ' said the Tottenham defender, who impressed as England bounced back from Saturday's 2-1 Wembley defeat to Spain.

There was little response from the Swiss, as England comfortably saw out the victory at the packed King Power Stadium.

Gareth Southgate's World Cup semi-finalists came into the match on the back of three consecutive defeats and his much-changed line-up were off the pace in the first 45 minutes at the King Power Stadium.

The home truths exchanged in the dressing room at half-time resulted in a far shaper England performance in the second-half.

The Spurs full-back was very energetic in the first period, before continuing a similar role in the second.

"It was a short break with no pre-season and everybody was back earlier than I am sure everybody would have expected for club matches, although that is entirely understandable".

The stopper began with a mishit pass almost hitting the back of his own net, before playing defender James Tarkowski into trouble which finished with Shaqiri smashing the post.

It was incredible play even finished Monday after rain soaked the course overnight and pushed up tee times. Bradley made three more birdies on the back nine to head to the 18th tee tied for the lead with Rose.

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.

While England had an impressive summer campaign at the World Cup, defying all expectations to reach the semi-finals over in Russian Federation, they did so with a relatively young and inexperienced side.

"They were frustrated in the first half, but I always knew that was a risk".

However, Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to play from the start against the Swiss, where he could face Liverpool teammate Xherdan Shaqiri.

"Before I got in the players were trying to sort things out", he continued. The gaffer had a stern word with us and in the second half it was much better.

It's then back to Wembley in November for games with United States of America and Croatia, for which tickets are on sale now.

England fans have had to sit through some turgid friendlies during the past couple of decades, ruined largely by what felt like endless substitutions.
