​Tottenham star Kane to miss England clash; Dier likely captain

Gareth Southgate has decided to rest England captain Harry Kane for the friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday, Sky Sports have reported.

The replacement for the armband is likely to be Kane's teammate at Spurs – Eric Dier.

It is expected from Southgate to make a total of nine changes from the side that lost the Nations League match to Spain on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Jack Butland, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, James Tarkowski, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabian Delph, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Daniel Welbeck are all poised to start.

If Three Lions lose on Tuesday, it will be their fourth loss in a row for the first time, counting the last two games at the World Cup.
