Danny Rose has revealed England’s players argued at half-time after a poor first half display in Tuesday’s friendly against Switzerland.
The Three Lions ended up winning 1-0 at the King Power Stadium, but the hosts’ first half display was far below the standards the team has set in recent months.
Rose was named man of the match after the game and was easily England’s best player before the break.
And the 28-year-old admits he and his teammates shared a few harsh words before coming out for the second half.
“We were outplayed [in the first half]. It was a bit embarrassing,” Rose said (via talkSPORT).
“We could have been two or three down. It’s great we can all shout at each other and tell each other it’s not good enough.
“The second half wasn’t amazing but it was better than the first and we’re over the moon we got the win.”
The Tottenham star looked back to his best on the night, making ambitious runs forward and producing some fine deliveries into the box.
Rose suffered a dip in form last season as a result of coming back from a serious knee injury combined with the infamous interview he gave last August in which he criticised his club.
Now seemingly back in Mauricio Pochettino’s good books, the left-back could be handed a start against Liverpool on Saturday following Ben Davies’ below par performance against Watford.
