Declan Rice will miss the next few weeks of that particular quest having suffered a knee injury while on duty with Gareth Southgate's side.

Southgate will have been pleased to see Marcus Rashford on the scoresheet for Manchester United on Sunday after he missed out on the recent internationals.

Ollie Watkins was handed a call-up in Rashford's absence and he also netted on Sunday as Aston Villa came from behind to beat Fulham.
