    Sarina Wiegman clearly doesn’t mess about. By the time journalists had left the press box, the entire team had already headed to the pitch behind the ground for their cool-down.

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    More from Ian Wright: "Alessia Russo's link-up play was good and she just needed goals. I would have no problem starting her and I would start with Chloe Kelly because you want to get the crowd going.

    "Someone like Chloe Kelly will get the crowd going. We need people taking chances."

  6. Post update

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    Ian Wright says Manchester United forward Alessia Russo should start next Wednesday against Austria at Old Trafford.

  7. 'England need to be more ruthless'

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright, who is working for ITV Sport at this game:

    "You will be happy [with England's record going into the Euros]. When you look at the teams and the way we have beaten those teams, we should be beating them.

    "The way we have beaten them some of the time has been a bit disappointing because we should have been more ruthless from the start.

    "We saw it again a week before the Euros. We are still seeing a little bit of not being ruthless enough in front of goal. We have got to finish those games off. Other than that it's been brilliant.

    "It's fantastic for confidence going into your home Euros."

  8. 'The real job starts next Wednesday'

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    Sarina Wiegman is asked if England could be in a better position heading into the Euros:

    "We are in a very good place but we have to improve a couple of things."

  9. Winning machine

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    More from Wiegman: "We started well. We had three big chances at the beginning of the game and it would have been easy to score those goals but we didn't. The keeper did a very good job too. They got dangerous and we had to speed up the game in the first half more.

    "We were slow and the ball tempo was too low. In the second half we did a little better and they got tired."

  11. 'We are a fit team'

    FT Switzerland 0-4 England


    Asked what did she learn from England's performance in Zurich, Sarina Wiegman tells ITV Sport: "It's a very good result. I think we showed again we are a very fit team.

    They struggled a little in the first half, but the second has definitely proved just how strong this England team can be.

    The subs helped make a big difference and the team were a much-improved unit who ran the hosts' defence ragged.

    That strength in depth could be England's key weapon at the Euros.

    Alessia Russo is asked whether it is coming home.

  16. 'Now we can focus on Euros'

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England


    England forward Alessia Russo, speaking to ITV Sport: "There were times in the first half where we could have scored but we were patient. At half-time we spoke about keeping the tempo high and the substitutes made a difference.

    "It was great to score. Sometimes it's not always going to be impressive but its great to get the win. Now we can get locked in and focus on the Euros."

  17. 'Excellent warm-up campaign'

    FT: Switzerland 0-4 England
