Chelsea Fans Are P*ssed At Their Clubs Tweet About Ruben Loftus-Cheek

England fans can't wait to see whether Loftus-Cheek can follow up Friday evening's display with an equally impressive performance against Brazil on Tuesday night. "To go to the World Cup it is still a long season and I'll look to improve until the end of the season".

Loftus-Cheek, 21, who has been outstanding since joining Crystal Palace on loan for the season from Chelsea in the summer, said: "I'm really happy".

"He did everything I know he can do", Southgate told ITV. It was good for us young players and I certainly learned a lot.

"I think they can withstand losing a couple of players if we get injuries - it is not all resting on one person, which is important but also exciting as well". I think he needs that confidence because he's capable of anything.

Pickford made the most of his opportunity following Jack Butland's withdrawal after fracturing a finger in training on Thursday.

The 21-year-old lined up alongside captain for the night Eric Dier and Jake Livermore, and the three midfielders formed a solid trio in the centre of the park.

Loftus-Cheek added: "The manager has said do your best".

"There's various levels - they either save what they should save and not much else or they go to the next level and make match-winning saves. He can be really pleased with his performance".

Southgate said: "Going out and playing has helped him".

Solanke, Cook and Gunn got the nod after helping Aidy Boothroyd's Young Lions continue their unbeaten start to their Euro qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over Ukraine.

"We would have played Jack in the game against Brazil".

"Then we'll have a look and we'll just assess what's required".

"In the first half there were a couple of really goods saves from Jordan Pickford, we caused our own problems with a couple of those".

"They [the u21s] don't have a game and for them to be involved against Brazil would be a brilliant experience for them".

"Just keep him wanting a little bit more". Despite his size and appearance and the way he plays, he's not hugely confident at times.
