Ruben Loftus-Cheek Produce Ridiculous Double Nutmeg On England Debut

Ruben Loftus-Cheek Produce Ridiculous Double Nutmeg On England Debut

England coach Gareth Southgate wasn't surprised by Ruben Loftus-Cheek's performance for their 0-0 draw with Germany.

And he sparkled against the world champions on his global bow by putting in a display that earned him the man-of-the match award. [Gareth Southgate] just said, do your best like you normally do, ' said the 21-year-old. I think it was a very tactical game. It is well known that England's squad is anything but cemented ahead of the Three Lions' trip to Russian Federation in 2018, and some good performances in the national team shirt as well as strong Premier League displays this season could well be enough for the pair to persuade a manager who will definitely be open to taking young players to the tournament, given his previous role with the England U21 side. That was not to say he was always effective but then with a player like Loftus-Cheek that just happens to be part of the deal.

One performance for an injury-hit England side, though, has propelled his name into the conversation for a spot in the squad at next year's World Cup.

Gareth Southgate has been significantly hampered by injuries, with a number of key players absent tonight, including Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli, Jordan Henderson, and Jack Butland, in what is the most inexperienced Three Lions side in 37 years (101 caps). He has the physical attributes and he can handle the ball. I've settled in really well and they gave me a platform to go out and play. He will gain huge confidence from his display.

He also promised to do more to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions, warning against "nuclear blackmail". In his speech, Trump painted a dark picture of North Korea as "a country ruled as a cult".

'To go to the World Cup, it's still a long season and I look to improve, so I think there's a chance. "He's an exciting player and he's one who might have gone under the radar a bit for the wider public until now". "I have to keep learning and getting better and hopefully there's a chance to get on the plane".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits he had a "vision" in the summer to leave Chelsea in order to speed up his career, a move which has seen him earn an England call-up.

This area looked like a sterile weakness in England's team but Loftus-Cheek, with strength, skill and a touch of arrogance, offered tantalising glimpses that he may be an option to cure that problem.
