Southgate singles out Loftus-Cheek for praise

Southgate singles out Loftus-Cheek for praise

So when an England No 10 playing his first senior global drags the ball back through Leroy Sané's legs to get himself out of a tight spot, then flicks...

Ruben did everything that I know he can.

On Friday the Chelsea ace, now 21, showed what he is capable of with his dazzling debut against world champions Germany.

The Evening Standard report he said: "I definitely don't want to be compared with Dele anymore".

Ian Wright disagreed and said: "I'd play him simply because he's not played a lot of football".

Croatia Cruise past Greece, Switzerland Down Ireland
Put simply Greece were embarrassing in this game, especially on the defensive side of the ball. The second leg of Croatia-Greece and Northern Ireland-Switzerland will take place on Sunday.

"It's about opportunities and young players need opportunities", Cundy told talkSPORT.

"This season going out and playing has helped him". And while most youngsters go out on loan, especially at Chelsea, that was not the case for RLC.

Loftus-Cheek looked like a seasoned worldwide on the Wembley turf, pulling off a nutmeg and a Cruyff turn in the first half before being clattered as he played with a real swagger against Joachim Low's silverware-heavy team. So all things considered, without the ball finding its way into the back of the net, we'll give England the moral victory thanks to the Loftus-Cheek double nutmeg.

Asked if he would play him from the start against Brazil on Tuesday if he was in Gareth Southgate's shoes, Giggs responded: "I wouldn't but, looking at the bench, there's not much choice. They probably saw the threat".

The Three Lions kicked off their World Cup-preparation friendlies against reigning champions Germany on Friday, when an inexperienced side made light of injury troubles in an entertaining 0-0 draw.

Lionel Messi: Barcelona star APOLOGISES… he has sent fellow star a message
Sampaoli said after the 1-0 win over Russia: "The only confirmed absence for the game on Tuesday is Messi". The only goal of the game was scored by Manchester City's all-time top goal scorer Sergio Aguero .

"He has so many good attributes". "But I'm really happy".

And Southgate has been delighted by Loftus-Cheek's contribution for England in recent days.

"And unfortunately my club - it's the biggest failing since Roman [Abramovich] has come in - has not produced a young player that's come through the academy".

If Gareth Southgate wanted a selection problem he's been given one by Loftus-Cheek. You see him receiving the ball behind the opposition midfield, driving towards goal and being able to slide passes into people.

But we're all for Southgate's youth-driven policy. "It was a really tactical game. He is a massive miss for England, but hopefully, we will play together for England one day very soon". I've settled in really well and they've given me a platform to go out and play.

'I haven't liked us in a 4-2-3-1. "But now we could fit those sort of players into different systems".
