Ruben Loftus-Cheek Produce Ridiculous Double Nutmeg On England Debut

That is the verdict of pundit and former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas.

The 21-year-old, who is now on-loan at Crystal Palace, is set to make his England debut tonight against Germany at a sold-out Wembley, as may Tammy Abraham too.

"At the top end, when he was in the hole, he takes the ball on his back foot and turns".

Having taken his chance following injuries to established stars Jordan Henderson and Dele Alli, Loftus-Cheek now plans to keep pushing in the hope of forcing Southgate's hand come next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

According to Sky Sports, Loftus-Cheek and Abraham will be a part of the starting eleven, which appears to be set up in the 3-5-2 formation that Chelsea used to great effect against Manchester United last Sunday.

In the video, McGregor continued to point and yell in Goddard's direction before eventually exiting. His victory prompted McGregor to leap into the Octagon to celebrate with Ward at the 3Arena.

Loftus-Cheek wasn't afraid to try something different on his debut and provided one or two moments of impish flair during the first half.

Southgate knows the midfielder having played him during his time as England Under-21 manager, and is convinced the Lewisham-born man is capable of operating on the biggest stage. So for me to get to that next level I needed to play regular football.

'I had Gareth for almost three years in the Under-21s so it wasn't too much of a new thing coming here.

Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was another impressive performer as he made his debut between the sticks for the Three Lions, and he made a number of fantastic saves to keep City's Leroy Sane and Timo Werner of RB Leipzig from scoring on Friday night.

Abraham and Loftus-Cheek have the chance to start a serious push for their own places against some quality opposition this evening, making for an global fixture that is of considerably greater interest than usual for Chelsea supporters.
