Maguire joined Leicester in 2017 and, after winning the joint-most aerial duels (41) the tournament, was one of the star performers for England this summer as Gareth Southgate's side reached a first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

After an exciting summer of World Cup action and a creditable narrow defeat to Spain in their opening UEFA Nations League game over the weekend, "dull worldwide friendly" service resumed for Gareth Southgate's England as they took on Switzerland at the King Power Stadium.

The Three Lions seized initiative on 54 minutes to go in front thanks to a finish at the far post from Rashford after being picked out by Kyle Walker.

"So we have got to give Marcus time to develop".

"I just want to see him progress, continue to improve and become the great player I know he's going to become".

Daily Telegraph columnist Jamie Carragher made the point that Rashford has the most hard of tasks at United - a young player coming through as a striker at a big club.

It does not mean Shaw is certain to play at Vicarage Road as United's medical staff must be convinced of the full-back's recovery before making him available to manager Jose Mourinho. I think there is a welfare thing in terms of looking after players. "We think it is important to keep encouraging him to keep running in behind teams with the pace he's got as well".

'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.
