Loftus-Cheek, who has become the canary in the mine for England's youth development pathway, had played only 33 minutes for Chelsea this season prior to kickoff, while Delph was making his first appearance of the campaign.

The Tottenham man played the full 90 minutes in the Nations League opener against Spain on Saturday, where England lost 2-1.

The opening goal arrived 10 minutes into the second half as Kyle Walker's impressive cross found Rashford, who had the simple task of slotting home from six-yards out. "Harry falls in the category in which we have several players where we have to watch how much they play". "He's had three days of little training, so half-an-hour was ideal to keep him ticking over. We turned it over too easily in that first period but we kept the ball better in the second half".

"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".

"It was two tough tests against different formations and in the end we've got a good result tonight and could arguably have deserved a draw on Saturday".

He started all but one of England's games at the World Cup and is arguably the first name on the team sheet at his club. "And I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a outcome of a unique talent.capable and willing to have the ball against any opposition".

While England had an impressive summer campaign at the World Cup, defying all expectations to reach the semi-finals over in Russian Federation, they did so with a relatively young and inexperienced side.
