England manager encouraged by emergence of Loftus-Cheek and Winks

  • Gareth Southgate Chelsea Ruben Loftus-Cheek

At 21, he is the same age as Alli but has barely made 40 caps in his professional career, while the Spurs midfielder has played close to 200 games in all competitions and is an England regular.

"(On Friday night) we had to be tactically right with and without the ball.

Asked if the assured debuts of Loftus-Cheek and now injured Winks made him feel more positive about his options, the England manager said: "Yeah, and I think the slightly different system opens up different possibilities".

Should Loftus-Cheek be an option for England's World Cup squad after one game?

Despite selling Nemanja Matic and Nathaniel Chalobah, the 21-year-old was loaned out to Crystal Palace for this season.

"He's a good player who we need, so who knows what we can do yet".

"When you see his physical size, you think you'll also see a certain type of player". I don't think the wider public may be as aware of him - you would have to follow very closely - but we believe in him and believe in the others we played.

"So it seemed as if there had been loads of pull outs and it's a bit messy, but actually it's been really tight and I think the performance - without getting too carried away - was a really encouraging one".

Now he's added Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook and Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke to the England squad preparing to face Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday, according to The Telegraph. "Then we'll have a look and just assess what is required".

So much so he earned his first England call-up.

"They don't have a game and for them to be involved with a game against Brazil will be a brilliant experience for them".

"I think that's one of the most pleasing things of working with this group over a period of time".

The Englishman struggled to gain match time at Chelsea last season as the Blues went on to win the title.
