One fan did, however, not buy into the worldwide friendly hype.
England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed that midfielder Dele Alli is expected to return from injury in time for Tottenham Hotspur's match against Liverpool after the worldwide break, according to Sky Sports.
Leicester: England manager Gareth Southgate recognised his side have vast room for improvement despite bouncing back from three consecutive defeats as a much-changed team edged past Switzerland for a 1-0 friendly win thanks to Marcus Rashford's victor. I do remember a similar situation myself, accumulation from Euro 96 through Le Tournoi in 97 to World Cup 98 in France.
Aside from his outburst, Rose done his England credentials the world of good against Switzerland.
The Three Lions captain was expected to be rested for the clash but replaced Danny Welbeck after 61 minutes of play at the King Power Stadium.
He now returns to Old Trafford to begin a three-game suspension for a red card picked up 10 minutes after going on as a sub in their win at Burnley in the last game before this global break.
Exercise: The youngster will have benefited from his playing time with England.
Rose admitted after the game that England players were shouting at each other in the dressing room at half-time after their performance. "He's had three days of little training, so half-an-hour was ideal to keep him ticking over".
Although Loftus-Cheek did manage to work Sommer with a deflected effort from the edge of the box, by the time he made way for Lingard in the 62nd minute, he had done little to advance his cause.
Rashford started against Spain on Saturday and Switzerland on Tuesday, and scored in both games.
Fortunately, England managed to get through the Switzerland match without the need to call on Gazza's services. "They were frustrated after the first half". England generally prevented him from taking up unsafe positions, but he came close to breaking the deadlock early on after Gavranovic robbed Tarkowski on the edge of the box. The slickness of their passing did not translate into goal chances, but after their rout of Iceland, the spring in their step augurs well for next month's testing trip to Belgium in the Nations League.
