Marcus Rashford better than Ronaldo and Kane at 20 - Southgate

Marcus Rashford better than Ronaldo and Kane at 20 - Southgate

After their 2-1 defeat to Spain in the UEFA Nations League at Wembley, Gareth Southgate's side started putting things right with a 1-0 win over Switzerland.

Gareth Southgate has expressed frustration about Phil Foden's lack of first-team involvement for Manchester City and warned England's senior players they can not expect to keep their places if they are not involved more regularly for their club sides.

And Southgate says it's the sort of spirit and responsibility he wants to see his players taking, with the result being an improved second-half display and a winning goal from Marcus Rashford. Delph offered little forward thrust either, meaning that it was often left to Rashford to take the initiative by turning and running at the Swiss back three.

Comparisons with Kane and Ronaldo are possibly over the top but, in essence, Southgate is correct.

Former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville insists that Harry Kane should have been rested for the recent internationals with Spain and Switzerland.

When asked is he felt Rashford was a "special talent" after Tuesday's win over Switzerland, southgate replied: "Yes he is".

"Alli has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but Tuesday's game will come too quickly", he confirmed at the England news conference on Monday. I think they might, at the beginning, let Tottenham come at them a little bit, give them a bit of respect, which is right because Tottenham's home record was great a year ago. He's a huge admirer of him, but he's got his job to do.

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

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus". But it was quite calm by the time we got in there.

'We really wanted to make Marcus feel important over this period, ' added Southgate.

Rashford subsequently went to Euro 2016 as England's boy wonder but only played a cameo role in that tournament and was then largely a substitute at this summer's World Cup.
