England's Marcus Rashford celebrates scoring their first goal.

Striker Marcus Rashford scored a second-half winner as a young and much-changed England avoided an unprecedented fourth successive defeat by beating Switzerland 1-0 in a friendly international on Tuesday.

The Manchester United forward clinically side-footed the ball home at the back post in the 54th minute at Leicester City's King Power Stadium after an over-hit corner was swung back in by Kyle Walker.

It was Rashford's fifth goal for England in 27 matches.

The World Cup semi-finalists, who made nine changes to the side beaten 2-1 by Spain in the Nations League at Wembley on Saturday, had provided few thrills in a first half controlled by the more flowing Swiss.
