England's Southgate has big calls to make

England's Southgate has big calls to make

Ruben Loftus-Cheek insists he can still improve after making an impressive England debut in the entertaining goalless draw with Germany.

Tammy Abraham proved a handful during his first 60 minutes of global football and man of the match Ruben Loftus-Cheek flourished under the Wembley floodlights, as did fellow debutant Jordan Pickford.

Dier, 23, wore the captain's armband in the worldwide friendly clash that finished 0-0 at Wembley, and although it was a goalless game, it definitely gave some encouragement ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer as Gareth Southgate was forced to field a second-string side.

"I know he's coming back from injury, and maybe that's why he didn't look completely sharp, and wasn't able to get up and down the pitch" he added.

The Chelsea player, now on loan at fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace continued: "It could have been better, if we had won it would have been better".

The 21-year-old became the first Palace player to start for the Three Lions at Wembley since Geoff Thomas in February 1992.

At least Gareth Southgate is fulfilling his promise to give young players a chance at senior level.

"If we'd won it would have been better, but it was a tough game, and a good game from me to learn from". I don't think the wider public will be as aware of him, you would have to have followed him very closely, but we believe in him and the others we played.

"I'm really not surprised with what they've done because they've shown that previously in younger ages and in the week in training, there's been an energy about the group".

The 20-year-old has previously played for the Under-16s through to the Under-21s.

England's next game comes against Brazil on Tuesday, and Loftus-Cheek is bound to be involved again. So for me to get to that next level I needed to play regular football.
