Gary Neville concerned for Harry Kane amid burnout fears

Gareth Southgate- Gareth Southgate I will not continue to manage England in fear if goodwill ends

Gareth Southgate- Gareth Southgate I will not continue to manage England in fear if goodwill ends

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

Much of the talk in the aftermath of England's loss to Spain last Saturday focused on the lack of a world-class creative midfielder in the hosts' ranks, with Southgate opining afterwards that England have not produced such a player since Paul Gascoigne, who happened to be in attendance at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

If we get to Christmas without Kane hitting double figures in the goals column, then that will be the time to sound the alarm bells and consider sending him on a two-week holiday. Old stagers Valon Behrami and Gelson Fernandes both announced their worldwide retirements after being left out of the current get-together, and fellow World Cup squad members Blerim Dzemaili and Josip Drmic were also overlooked.

Redknapp pointed to Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo benefiting from a family holiday during this worldwide break, insisting Kane also needed "five or six days, just to break away from it", while Carragher claimed he has "never looked quite like the Harry Kane we know" since returning from an ankle injury last April after spending just three weeks on the sidelines. For about six to eight months I really struggled mentally and physically. I think it was the Colombia game during the World Cup and I thought he's done, he's finished, he can't move.

Raiders' Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'
The right strategy for the Bears there would have been to run it on third down, and if they didn't get it to run it on fourth. Even while giving due credit to Khalil Mack , who was a good as advertised in the first half, Kizer's performance was putrid.

I'm not saying Kane is in that same situation because I don't speak to him but he just looks to me at this moment in time that he needs looking after. "We know how exciting he is and we know he is going to be a top player, he's got a super mentality and he's great to work with". "There is no reason why we can't", he said.

Do you think Rashford as the ability to reach Ronaldo's level? They dug in through that tough period and we were able to make some tactical changes at half-time and put some physically sharper players on. We do not want to give chances and goals away. But it was quite calm by the time we got in there.

At the restart, the Swiss returned with a double switch as Admir Mehmedi and Francois Moubandje made their way onto the field of play. He's probably frustrated in himself with his performances but it is just that mental fatigue as to why he needs a mental break, and he will come back better and fresher.
