England manager encouraged by emergence of Loftus-Cheek and Winks

Last night he gave Joe Gomez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jack Cork and Tammy Abraham global debuts, in the 0-0 draw with Germany.

Southgate knows "we've still loads we can get better at" but believes their display against Germany offered encouragement to England fans, as did the new faces given a run-out.

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

England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed he considered calling Ruben Loftus-Cheek into the senior worldwide squad earlier than last week.

"Everyone's known about Ruben's potential for a long time", the Tottenham star said post-game. "Despite his size, appearance and the way he plays, he's not hugely confident at times and I think tonight it took him 10 minutes to have a look around him and think "all right, OK, I can do this". Then I saw what you all saw against Germany - one that is so technically-gifted".

"He's also been able to battle through hard spells at Chelsea where he's been training with senior players who have recognised his talent and so they get to him in training".

Iran rejects Macron call for talks on Iranian missiles
A ballistic missile that was intercepted near the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh Saturday came from Iran, it was reported. On Thursday, during a visit to Saudi Arabia, Macron said there were " extremely strong concerns about Iran ".

"Have they kept him in his place? We were always going to play Jordan (on Friday night), but we'll now play Joe on Tuesday".

The important thing is that Chelsea is still Loftus-Cheek's parent club and has a chance of making our team next season.

"I watched Bakayoko the other day up front or playing further forward against Manchester United and he never done anything in that game that made me think that he's a better player than Loftus-Cheek", Wright told ITV Sport.

Loftus-Cheek is convinced Palace will improve once Christian Benteke is back fully fit. I thought fair play for him to go to [Crystal] Palace and I am pleased he got in the [England] team.
