Alli out of England squad to face Switzerland

England full-back Danny Rose has admitted that his side's first-half performance during this evening's global friendly with Switzerland was "embarrassing".

Kane has appeared sluggish and off the pace since returning from an ankle injury sustained against Bournemouth in March and Neville expressed his surprise that Gareth Southgate made a decision to use him as a second half substitute during England's 1-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday.

Marcus Rashford went into the worldwide 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.

Rashford's strike put some gloss on what was a less-than-convincing performance by the World Cup semifinalists, which was typified by the jitters of goalkeeper Jack Butland. Switzerland had their chances in the first half, with Xherdan Shaqiri hitting the outside of the post from inside the box after seven minutes.

It does not mean Shaw is certain to play at Vicarage Road as United's medical staff must be convinced of the full-back's recovery before making him available to manager Jose Mourinho.

Eric Dier, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Fabian Delph will start in midfield, while Danny Welbeck joins Rashford up front.

North Carolina Issues First-of-Kind State Evacuation Order Due to Hurricane
The National Hurricane Center is predicting the storm will produce "catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding". This could add another metre or more of surge, which is forecast to be as high as four metres in some parts of North Carolina.

"We could have been two or three-nil down at half-time", admitted Rose, who was man-of-the-match. Loftus-Cheek is a serious talent but thus far the 22-year-old has made just two appearances as a substitute at Chelsea this season. He's had three days of little training. "We think it is important to keep encouraging him to keep running in behind teams with the pace he's got as well".

If England lose against Switzerland, it will be the nation's longest ever run of losses.

England proved far too strong for the Swedes before falling short against Croatia in the last four, but it is Switzerland who have so far bounced back from their World Cup disappointment the stronger.

That was the trend for the rest of the half as the Three Lions hung on for the victory.

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.
