Gareth Southgate expects swift return to club action for Dele Alli

Gareth Southgate expects swift return to club action for Dele Alli

Kane will be rested for England's friendly against Switzerland after making 61 starts for his club, Tottenham Hotspur, and country since the beginning of last season.

"I think we needed to develop players who could play one and two touch".

The Tottenham midfielder started England's UEFA Nations League match against Spain at Wembley on Saturday night, which the visitors won 2-1 with all three goals coming in the first half.

"We talked a bit after the World Cup about the demands of the modern player", Southgate said of the decision to give Kane a break. That, however, is the current position for Southgate and, as such, England's attacking midfielders will be Loftus-Cheek, with 33 minutes in two substitute appearances for Chelsea, and Delph, yet to feature at all for Manchester City.

"Normally we have not got opposing objectives and the clubs would be holding their breath and hiding behind their sofas watching our teams go out".

Southgate said he was impressed by the way Spain had replaced the heroes of their 2010 World Cup-winning side with creative players like Isco, Sergio Busquets and Thiago Alcantara.

After Jamie Vardy recently announced his decision to retire from global football, and with Raheem Sterling injured, England's lack of firepower has become even more glaring, with Southgate effectively ruling out call-ups for Troy Deeney, 30, and Glenn Murray, 34.

"What we did to promote comfort on the ball was start to get players who are comfortable on the ball".

"There aren't many English strikers playing", Southgate added.
