       The Leicester City pair will join the England senior squad ahead of the game with Switzerland

There was a marked improvement in the second period, with Rashford on hand to halt a run of three consecutive defeats for the World Cup semi-finalists.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate will be eager for his side to bounce back from defeats to Croatia, Belgium and Spain in their past three fixtures. But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress.

"It was a tall order to ask them to play against an excellent Switzerland side, they kept the ball well and we had to chase too much".

'We know the performance could have been better, ' he said.

Andhra man killed in shooting at U.S. bank
In July, Sharat Koppu, 26, from Telangana was shot dead by an unidentified person at a restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri. An Indian youth was among the three people who were killed when a gunman opened fire at a bank in the USA state of Ohio.

According to British sources, the muscle problem that forced him to be substituted in England's game against Switzerland was not a serious one.

England didn't get off the best start in the first half after making nine changes from their game against Spain, but Southgate made a few tweaks for the second half before Rashford's 54th-minute victor. And this resulted in many players taking home the prized cap, while how deserving they were of then being branded an "England international" has been open to great debate.

"We could have been two or three-nil down at half-time", Tottenham's Rose told BBC Radio 5 live.

Switzerland had their chances in the first half, with Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the outside of the post from inside the box after seven minutes.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor was stunned by the No.20 seed in the first set, falling to a 6-2 defeat in just 34 minutes. At a news conference following her loss, Williams said she's seen male players call other umpires "several things".

Switzerland looked impressively assured on the ball, managing to find space in midfield in a manner that generally proved beyond England, and saw 65 percent of possession in the first half.

A more positive start to the second period for the hosts was rewarded with the only goal on 54 minutes when Kyle Walker's hanging cross to the back post was swept home by Rashford for his fifth global goal.

With many feeling the pair were unfairly overlooked when Southgate first named his England squad, fans on Twitter were excited to see both Gray and Chilwell get their first senior call-ups.

John Stones was introduced in a triple substitution alongside Harry Kane and Jesse Lingard after the hour and the Manchester City defender ended up with a bloodied head having bravely denied Shaqiri.
