Gareth Southgate made wholesale changes from the weekend's Nations League clash, with only Rashford and Harry Maguire retaining their spots.

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. 'It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did. They recognise when they want to be better.

"We know that football has a big impact on the communities that surround it, and we're very proud to be able to showcase that on the worldwide stage".

Southgate could make up to nine changes from the team that started England's Nations League campaign with a 2-1 defeat by Spain at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

"We didn't get hold of their pivot in the first half, [Granit] Xhaka was always available and their back three were finding him too easily".

England ended the game with two Leicester City players on the pitch in Harry Maguire, who excelled throughout, and Ben Chilwell who was handed his debut as a second-half substitute to what was the second biggest cheer of the night.

Nicki Minaj Says Incident with Cardi B Was 'Humiliating'
In 2017, the Bronx-born rapper drew heat from fans after she was accused of referring to dark-skinned black women as "roaches". Using her real name (Onika Tanya Maraj), Minaj added: "It's insane for me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy".

'The gaffer had stern words with us and second half was much better'. Today, they were harsh on themselves.

"We also had a tactical issue dealing with Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka going so deep, which meant even more running for lads getting their first game of the season".

"Before I got in the players were trying to sort things out", he continued. "It was important then that we solved a couple of the problems they were facing and kept things calm", Southgate said. Following Luke Shaw's similarly encouraging showing against Spain and with Walker, Kieran Trippier and Trent Alexander-Arnold as options on the other side, wing-back is one position where Southgate does not lack for elite talent.

"It was two tough tests against different formations and in the end we've got a good result tonight and could arguably have deserved a draw on Saturday".

"It is easy for them to be harsh on themselves but Danny has only has had one match this season and we are suffering a physical situation on the back of the World Cup for so numerous players".
