What Ian Wright did in England's dressing room before Germany draw

Ruben Loftus-Cheek had 'vision' to leave Chelsea and accelerate career

England manager Gareth Southgate hailed debutant Ruben Loftus-Cheek following his man-of-the-match performance against Germany.

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

But despite the exuberance of a youthful side saw them match reigning World Cup champions Germany punch-for-punch, though Pickford was required to make a few outstanding saves in the first half.

Loftus-Cheek is clearly enjoying a new lease of life following his season-long loan move to Crystal Palace and believes the best is yet to come.

The 23-year-old gave a good account of himself, as the Three Lions played out a goalless draw with Germany.

Loftus-Cheek was pivotal to the endeavour, creativity and steel displayed by England's inexperienced side at Wembley.

"He's quite a quiet lad, so I'm hoping he gets a lift in confidence from how we see him, the level we think he's capable of".

"He's got so many good attributes and that's why we put him into the team".

Germany boss Joachim Low is without World Cup winners Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, and Toni Kroos, but has the likes of Leroy Sane, Mesut Ozil and Julian Draxler in his starting line-up, while RB Leipzig left-back Marcel Halstenberg makes his Germany debut at the age of 26 - what a rise it's been!

Southgate added: "He did everything I know he can do".

"I felt like I needed to play a lot, so I came in and said I wanted to go away from Chelsea and play games".

The 21-year-old midfielders improve midfield options that Southgate was bemoaning just months ago.

"I'm pretty confident this England team could stay up".

England's next game comes against Brazil on Tuesday, and Loftus-Cheek is bound to be involved again.
