He almost scuffed a pass into his own goal when trying to find Harry Maguire, and then played James Tarkowski into trouble, presenting Xherdan Shaqiri with an opportunity that he spurned.

Fortunately, England managed to get through the Switzerland match without the need to call on Gazza's services.

The 20-year-old's two goals will put pressure on the injured Raheem Sterling, who was preferred by Southgate in the World Cup starting line-up but is without an worldwide goal in 26 matches.

England defender Danny Rose has revealed the players did not hold back from criticising each other at half-time following a bad start to Tuesday's win over Switzerland.

More subs followed throughout the second half which disrupted the flow of the game, although England were enjoying a much greater degree of control than in the first half and Dier squandered a decent chance to add a second when he skied a left-footed strike over the bar from just outside the area.

"They were frustrated the first half".


'Everybody voiced their opinion at half-time, I thought we did better in the second half'. "We know how exciting he is, we know that he's going to be a top player", he told Sky Sports .

If the match confirmed what Southgate knows about Rashford, it also showed the England manager that there is clear daylight in the pecking order between Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland.

The victory ended a run of three successive defeats before next month's Nations League ties in Croatia and Spain.

Overall, however, Southgate said he was pleased with a victory obtained in hard circumstances.

The goalkeeper remained with the Potters following their relegation from the Premier League last season, and was the only member of the most recent England squad not to play for a top-flight club. "It was a tall order to ask them to go in and play against a really good side in Switzerland, who are an excellent team".
