Marcus Rashford ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo Harry Kane at same age - Southgate

Marcus Rashford ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo Harry Kane at same age - Southgate

He scored his first goal for the national team on the same day that he made his first start; scoring the opening goal in England's 2-0 friendly win over France in November 2015.

England manager Gareth Southgate has said former teammate Paul Gascoigne offered to play against Switzerland as the pair caught up before the global friendly.

Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half victor as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in an worldwide friendly on Tuesday.

But it needed the players to deliver some home truths to each other to shake England into action after Xherdan Shaqiri had hit the outside of the post in a first half that Switzerland dominated.

He now returns to Old Trafford to begin a three-game suspension for a red card picked up 10 minutes after going on as a sub in their win at Burnley in the last game before this worldwide break.

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.

"We could have been two or three-nil down at halftime", Tottenham Hotspur's Rose told BBC Radio 5 live. They say players get paid so much money, they need to play every week and what are they moaning about. "We know how exciting he is and we know he is going to be a top player, he's got a super mentality and he's great to work with". "They were frustrated after the first half".

However, he is now making it clear that the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, with 33 minutes for Chelsea this season, and Fabian Delph, who has not featured at all for City, might have to be excluded if they do not start playing more regularly before the game in Rijeka on 12 October and, three days later, at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville.

Marcus Rashford is ahead of where Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane were at his age - but needs to be made to feel "important".

"We have to remember that I don't think Harry, at that age, had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs, really".

Having had little time to impress in a Man United shirt this season, Rashford has taken the opportunity of the worldwide break to remind English football fans of his talent. "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".
