Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half victor as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth-successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in a friendly global on Tuesday.
Rashford, who has had a hard start to the season with Manchester United, also notched the opener at Wembley in their Nations League clash with Spain on Saturday night, before scoring the only goal in their friendly at the King Power Stadium.
England fans have had to sit through some turgid friendlies during the past couple of decades, ruined largely by what felt like endless substitutions.
Tropical storm Florence expected to become hurricane
None of these storms have ever hit the USA and therefore, if Florence does strike North or SC , it would be a historic moment. Elsewhere in the tropics, officials say Tropical Storm Helene is approaching islands off the western coast of Africa.
Rashford's strike put some gloss on what was a less-than-convincing performance by the World Cup semifinalists, which was typified by the jitters of goalkeeper Jack Butland.
Switzerland were soon gifted a chance to settle into the game, though, as Jack Butland's attempts to play out from the back nearly backfired twice in quick succession - the second of which saw James Tarkowski robbed of the ball and Xherdan Shaqiri subsequently fire a low strike against the outside of the post when he should have done better. But while there were some satisfactions - among them a first clean sheet in four games - England remain a work in progress.

The second half brought a notable improvement and Marcus Rashford netted the only goal from Kyle Walker's 54th-minute cross.

The England boss understandably showed loyalty to the squad that served him and the country so well in Russian Federation for this global break.
England reaped the benefits of a tactical tweak from Southgate at the interval after Switzerland controlled long periods of the first half.
Seeking to match England's shape, Petkovic set Switzerland out in a new 3-5-1-1 system, with Shaqiri playing as a central playmaker - as he had against Iceland, although in a 4-2-3-1 formation - behind lone striker Mario Gavranovic. [Xherdan] Shaqiri was also dropping off the front into areas that were a problem and they were overloading in midfield.
