Marcus Rashford says Gareth Southgate’s England set-up is “much better” than previous regimes.

England winger Rashford was fast-tracked by Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson into the national team that were humiliated by Iceland at Euro 2016.

But the Manchester United star believes the country are now in a far better place under Southgate.

He said: “We went out before we'd expected to go out and before we obviously wanted to go out, so it was a disappointing end to the season for me.

“I think since then, as a group we've got a new manager, new staff. The players are gelling in a whole different way compared to what we were then.

“I think the set-up and the aim and vision of where we want to go is much better now than what it was.

“Not necessarily on the pitch but off the pitch - around the hotel, everyone feels comfortable and relaxed to be themselves.

“That's something that I would say is different to last time. Everyone is being themselves and we're starting to understand each other more.

“At internationals, you don't get much time together to understand each other's personalities and what they like to do outside.

“The more we understand each other, the better the results will be on the pitch.

“That was from the manager himself, that was one of the things he wanted to install. As players we've bought into it, and hopefully we can get the results.”
