Kane hit the crossbar with a header and had a goal ruled out for offside in the goalless draw with Croatia, but he has not scored for England since netting against Colombia at the World Cup.

The Borussia Dortmund youngster earned a shock call-up to Gareth Southgate's squad this month and came off the bench in the second half against Croatia to make his debut.

Midfielder Dier reflected on the first match England had ever played behind closed doors, although he noted the presence of a handful of England fans on a hill overlooking the ground.

Better chances would fall Rashford's way shortly before the hour mark, but he got his first-time shot all wrong when he only had Dominik Livakovic to beat in the Croatia goal, before being denied by the young keeper on his second cap when attempting to curl it out of reach.

And Southgate explained one of the key reasons behind his shift in tactics is because he feels his team are no longer vulnerable as they once were.

The Three Lions were outclassed by Croatia in the semi-final, in large past thanks to the play of midfielders Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic.

"He made his decision and we have to respect that and look for other solutions".

'Hopefully he can play a big part for England in the future.

Dier headed Jordan Henderson's corner off the post a minute before the break.

That result followed a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Spain but coach Dalic is focusing on the future, rather than dwelling on the past.

England still have three other goalkeepers to choose from but Rose's exit, which came after Luke Shaw was forced to leave, means that Leicester's Ben Chilwell is now the only left-back in the squad. It is still not as we should be playing, we have to be braver in attack, more decisive and keep the ball better.

Southgate threw on 18-year-old Jadon Sancho for his global debut 12 minutes from time in search of a victor.
