Although, the Swiss got a big chance to punish them for poor defending but Xherdan Shaqiri shot wide from a one-on-one position with an on-rushing Jack Butland on six minutes. 'It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did.

It ended a run of two straight defeats for the Three Lions, three if we count the shootout reverse in the World Cup semi-final, as England bounced back from Saturday's Nations League loss against Spain at Wembley.

Manager Gareth Southgate is likely to select Ruben Loftus-Cheek to replace Alli after leaving the Chelsea playmaker on the bench on Saturday.

Depth of quality does not appears to be a strong suit with the Three Lions' current crop and some new blood to push Southgate's regulars can be expected next month.

Dier was one of two Tottenham players to feature, starting in midfield with Danny Rose at left-back. They recognise when they want to be better.




"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".

"We had a tactical problem to sort out and so many lads playing their first 45 minutes of the season", he added of the first-half display.

"We altered the shape a little bit in the second half, which I think helped get our defence a little bit higher up the pitch and meant less running for our midfielders. So I thought this is a good opportunity to do it".

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

"We know the performance could have been better". "I think for the teams that went towards the end of the World Cup it's a really hard period because so many players have missed pre-season and you're not really sure what physical condition they're in".
