Marcus Rashford scores as England beat Switzerland 1-0 to end losing streak

first_imgMarcus Rashford scored a second-half goal to help a young and vibrant England side beat Switzerland 1-0 and avoid a fourth successive defeat on Tuesday.Rashford clinically put the ball into the goal in the 54th minute from an over an over-hit corner, which was swung back in by Kyle Walker at the King Power Stadium.It was Rashford’s fifth goal in an England shirt from 27 matches and second in the space of days. He had also scored against Spain in England’s 1-2 loss at Wembley last Saturday in the UEFA Nations League.Coach Gareth Southgate made nine changes to the starting line-up from the Spain defeat and his side provided few thrills in a first half controlled by more free-flowing football from the Swiss team.”Everybody voiced their opinion at halftime and in the second half we took control,” man-of-the-match Danny Rose told Sky Sports television.Well played, Danny! #threelions pic.twitter.com/1n55LeHeBAEngland (@England) September 11, 2018Team mate Harry Maguire agreed it had been a bit fiery in the dressing room.”Definitely a few words spoken between the boys,” said the Leicester City player. “All of us, we weren’t happy with the performance at halftime. We gave them a little too much respect with the ball.”Manager Gareth Southgate altered the shape after the break, moving the defence higher up the pitch while the players did a better job of keeping possession.The England boss also made a raft of substitutions after the breakthrough, including bringing on striker Harry Kane in the 61st minute despite having indicated that he would be rested.advertisementLeicester City’s Ben Chilwell also came off the bench, making his England debut at his home Premier League ground to loud applause.Switzerland had their chances in the first half, with Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the outside of the post from inside the box after seven minutes.While England goalkeeper Jack Butland made some important saves, Southgate’s side too often looked vulnerable in defence in the opening half.”We had a tactical problem to sort out and so many lads who were playing their first 45 minutes of the season,” said Southgate.”They kept the ball really well and we had to chase too much. It was definitely a lot of room for improvement but also for so many their first start of the season and really important for them.”It was an important night for us to finish well.”Englanf debut at the KP and a win. What a night for me and my family.
