Gascoigne 'offered to play' against Switzerland - Southgate

Comparisons with Kane and Ronaldo are possibly over the top but, in essence, Southgate is correct.

He can be selected for United's opening UEFA Champions League game of the season, against Swiss side Young Boys.

It was Rashford's fifth goal for England in 27 matches.

The game was also a reminder of just how unbearable the England band are.

Even so, at the same age - 20 years and 317 days - Ronaldo had hit the back of the net 32 times for club and country.

NHC Forecast: Hurricane Florence is rapidly strengthening
The storm was located roughly 1,170 miles east-southeast of the Cape Fear region, and remained a unsafe Category 4 storm. As of 11 a.m., Florence was centered about 580 miles south-southeast of Bermuda, moving west at 13 mph.

After failing to score last August - as usual - Kane returned from the worldwide break by scoring 11 goals in six games for Spurs last September.

Kane will be back in action from the start when Spurs take on Liverpool at Wembley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Until this August, it had become a running joke that Kane had never scored in the first month of the campaign. At United, Rashford has Romelu Lukaku in his way at centre-forward and Alexis Sanchez occupying the left flank. They have a hard job to do and they have big squads in the top six, with huge competition for places.

Southgate believes there is much more to come from him, but his prospects are not helped by the bit-part role he continued to play at United. United do not want that to happen - hence giving him the No.10 shirt - but it may be something that Rashford will have to consider if his frustration grows.

His indispensable status, however, has meant that he has rarely had a chance to break as he has accumulated 106 goals for Spurs since the beginning of the 2015 season, twice earning the Premier League Golden Boot in the process.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles: final injury report and game predications
A sack by Fletcher Cox on third down was negated by Derek Barnett's offside penalty to keep the drive going. The Eagles offense was booed on its way to the tunnel at halftime after gaining just 68 yards on 30 plays.

Manager Gareth Southgate altered the shape after the break, moving the defence higher up the pitch while the players did a better job of keeping possession.

Speaking after the game, Southgate said: 'I think he's going to get matches at his club.

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

Seeking to match England's shape, Petkovic set Switzerland out in a new 3-5-1-1 system, with Shaqiri playing as a central playmaker - as he had against Iceland, although in a 4-2-3-1 formation - behind lone striker Mario Gavranovic. It is not as straightforward for Pep as: 'Oh, I'll just give Phil a game.' Every decision you make as a manager has a knock-on effect and I understand how complicated that is.
