Ruben Loftus-Cheek put in assured performance on his senior England debut against the reigning World Cup champions-Germany- no less and the youngster reaffirmed his desire to make Garerth Southgate's squad for the next year's tournament in Russian Federation.

The Three Lions fielded an inexperienced eleven with three players making their maiden worldwide appearances, Tammy Abraham joining Loftus-Cheek and Pickford, and totalling just 101 caps with only five players on 10 or more.

The England midfield has often been accused of lacking the creativity to unlock the opposition but with fitness concerns over Jack Wilshere and his failure to secure a regular place in the Arsenal team, Southgate could have finally found the answer to that problem.

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has said that he must still improve many aspects of his game, despite impressing as England secured a goalless draw with Germany.

The 21-year-old became the first Palace player to start for the Three Lions at Wembley since Geoff Thomas in February 1992.

"With the age of the squad, it was good for the young players".

Another opinion could be that Sam Bradford's season is over
Keenum replaced Bradford in the Bears game and led Minnesota to a 20-17 victory, and he's won each of his four starts since then. Vikings placed QB Sam Bradford on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

An added wrinkle was Sprint's negotiations with cable companies Comcast Corp and Charter Communications Inc. T-Mobile reported revenues in the third quarter that topped $10 billion for the first time, up 8 percent.

"I think we did well".

The 21-year-old grew into the match as time went on and was involved in some neat moves for the hosts, who also handed debuts to goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, forward Tammy Abraham and defender Joe Gomez, who came on as a first-half substitute for the injured Phil Jones. He's got so many good attributes, top attributes, and that's why we put him into the team.

"If we won it would have been better but I'm really happy", he told ITV Sport.

"He's certainly made really important saves tonight and of course with his feet, he gives the team a different dimension as well".

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

He said: "Loftus-Cheek is a player I've watched do that since U16 level, and despite his size and appearance and the way he plays, he's not hugely confident at times".
