England team news: Nine changes made for Switzerland friendly

England manager Gareth Southgate has said former teammate Paul Gascoigne offered to play against Switzerland as the pair caught up before the global friendly.

England captain Harry Kane will be rested for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland at Leicester City's King Power Stadium with manager Gareth Southgate keen to protect his talisman.

However, he is now making it clear that the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, with 33 minutes for Chelsea this season, and Fabian Delph, who has not featured at all for City, might have to be excluded if they do not start playing more regularly before the game in Rijeka on 12 October and, three days later, at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville.

"He would have been a bit disappointed about the amount of time he had at the World Cup, but it was important especially to get him in the penalty box and remembering the areas he needs to be scoring goals from, and so his confidence will be boosted I'm sure, two goals against top-quality opposition in both games".

'So I am hopeful next month we have a slightly different situation, because the problem we are faced with is whether we pick lesser players who are up to speed or we pick what we believe are the best players and accept that, for some of the younger ones in particular, they might have not had as much game time.
