Loftus-Cheek 'had a vision' to leave Chelsea

Loftus-Cheek 'had a vision' to leave Chelsea

Neither Abraham or Loftus-Cheek would have necessarily expected to start the first of these two games, but after a string of players withdrew from the squad including Harry Winks, Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jordan Henderson, Fabian Delph and Raheem Sterling, it seems Gareth Southgate has been somewhat forced into trialling a team of younger players for tonight's fixture.

On a night of positives for Southgate, Jordan Pickford demonstrated with four good saves why he deserves to travel to Russian Federation with Jack Butland and Joe Hart.

England should have been in front in less than 90 seconds when Danny Rose lofted a ball over the top for Vardy, whose pace easily took him clear of the Germany defence.

"I'm really not surprised because of what I saw before those boys came in and what I've seen in training".

'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'. "But I'm really happy".

Norwich goalkeeper Angus Gunn, on loan from Manchester City, will join up with the senior squad as cover for Jack Butland, who broke his finger in training on Thursday.

England have won six and lost none of their last seven games on home soil, however it's the Germans who have triumphed in the last three meetings at Wembley, including a 1-0 win four years ago.

"He's certainly made really important saves tonight and of course with his feet, he gives the team a different dimension as well".

Aidy Boothroyd's side continued their excellent unbeaten start to their European Championship qualifying with a 2-0 win in Ukraine earlier on Friday. So we came to an agreement. "There's a chance, but I have to keep learning and keep getting better". "We'll liaise with Aidy on that and go from there".
