Rashford strike helps England see off Switzerland Mourinho brands Rashford'naive after red card

"He has still played a lot of football, although maybe not continuous starts, and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves us full of confidence".

Jose Mourinho will be keen to put a turbulent start to the season behind him when Manchester United return to action this weekend. They have a hard job to do and they have big squads in the top six, with huge competition for places.

Speaking on Sky Sports during their coverage of England's 1-0 win over Switzerland, as reported by TalkSPORT, Carragher urged the striker to consider a move for the sake of his career. "They understand it is hard to pick players if we are seven, eight weeks into the season and they are not playing", Southgate said.

"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. He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand (his frustration)".

"Jose thinks the world of Marcus", he said.

"His confidence will be boosted I'm sure, with two goals against top-quality opposition".

Incidentally, he has now played more minutes for England this season in two matches than he has for United in four.

That means he'll miss the next three domestic games for United, matches against Watford and Wolves in the league as well as the League Cup Third Round s Derby County.
