Loftus-Cheek wins Man of the Match on England debut

Antonio Conte

Loftus-Cheek is preparing to make his full England debut on Friday night as the Three Lions take on world champions Germany at Wembley, although many are questioning his call-up to the senior team.

And he sparkled against the world champions on his worldwide bow by putting in a display that earned him the man-of-the match award.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is just in-front of the duo, while Tammy Abraham and Jamie Vardy lead the line.

"I'm really not surprised because of what I saw before those boys came in and what I've seen in training". "It's fantastic and I just want that feeling more and develop to be the best player I can be".

"Tammy [Abraham] and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as much as they are Chelsea players, they're on-loan somewhere else, they've gone somewhere else", Wright said.

"But I believe that if you do all the right things, in time you will get your opportunities".

"I felt like I needed to play a lot, so I came in and said I wanted to go away from Chelsea and play games". I have to say huge credit to the clubs for developing the sort of players they are developing, but we would be foolish not to see the signs of Spain and Germany being successful following on from success at youth level and sticking with some continuity with the way they play and the people involved.


"Dele has played around 200 games now and he's only 21 - I honestly do believe Loftus-Cheek has the ability to be equally as good as him, no question about it".

Loftus-Cheek looked like a seasoned global on the Wembley turf, pulling off a nutmeg and a Cruyff turn in the first half before being clattered as he played with a real swagger against Joachim Low's silverware-heavy team.

"He's an exciting player - we've got a few exciting players". So for me to get to that next level I needed to play regular football.

"There are no guarantees but I feel I have a better chance of playing".

Loftus-Cheek has made just 20 starts on the domestic scene since being handed his professional debut in December 2014.
