Gareth Southgate: "It was a fairly easy decision to ask Marlon to play. I think I put him in the team for the game about six weeks ago.

"I was pleased for him because I thought his overall performance was excellent.

"It's been difficult for him since he has been here but he got the crowd going. We need that leadership in the team."
