England captain Harry Kane to be rested for Switzerland friendly

8th September 2018 Wembley Stadium London England UEFA Nations League football England versus Spain Dele Alli of England

Marcus Rashford went into the global break under a cloud, after being red-carded for rashly lowering his head into Phil Bardsley's face during Manchester United's 2-0 win at Burnley, but he emerges from it as one of the few players to have scored points - and the only one to have scored any goals - for England.

After an exciting summer of World Cup action and a creditable narrow defeat to Spain in their opening UEFA Nations League game over the weekend, "dull global friendly" service resumed for Gareth Southgate's England as they took on Switzerland at the King Power Stadium.

"He [Alli] has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but tomorrow's game will come too quickly". Celebrating the 25th anniversary of an organisation which has done so much to eradicate racism and all forms of discrimination in the game and society, there was a strong Kick It Out presence around the King Power Stadium.

"He's got a super mentality, he's great to work with".

England worldwide and Tottenham midfielder, Dele Alli, will be available for Spurs against Inter in their Champions League group game which is scheduled to be held in a weeks time at the San Siro. A combination of the two meant we got a good response in the second half.

"It's not been a ideal week by any means but we finish with a win, which is important moving forward", said Southgate.

He was one of only two players to keep their place as Gareth Southgate shuffled his pack at the King Power Stadium and a disjointed first-half showing followed.

The new, enormous, expensive iPhone is confirmed and has a name
It is expected that the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will be called iPhone XS Plus and the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will be called iPhone XS . Apple is reportedly trying to limit the availability of the new iPhone Xr to estimate the demand for the more premium versions.

"Before I got in there the players were trying to sort things out", he explained.

Southgate, meanwhile, said of the row between the players at half-time: 'We expect that, we encourage it.

Spurs failed to sign any new players during the summer transfer window, so having the 22-year-old back and available for action as soon as possible will be vitally important for Mauricio Pochettino's side.

There was also a standout result in England's Nations League group on Tuesday night as Spain thumped Croatia 6-0 in Alicante.

We'll have to wait and see whether Alli manages to recover in time for the visit of Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime but it would be a huge blow for Tottenham if he's ruled out for any period of time.

"The first half was quite predictable really, but the players needed the game".

Danny Rose saw a rasping shot pushed clear by Yann Sommer, with the Tottenham wing-back the most regular source of fleeting attacking encouragement for the hosts.
