More to come from Ruben Loftus-Cheek - Eric Dier

The youngster's display at Wembley has boosted his chances of going to the World Cup

The youngster's display at Wembley has boosted his chances of going to the World Cup

Dier hopes the 21-year-old, who is on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea, can continue moving forward.

The Three Lions kicked off their World Cup preparation friendlies against reigning champions Germany on Friday, when an inexperienced side made light of injury troubles in an entertaining 0-0 draw.

England midfielder Eric Dier called for calm around Ruben Loftus-Cheek, urging people not to get "too carried away".

"He's a big boy, he's been the same since he was 12, I think!"

"I certainly learned a lot, and it just gives me that taste, to want more, and to improve game-by-game".

The stats make for good reading as Loftus-Cheek had a 96 percent pass completion rate, completing 50 successful passes out of 52.

"And when you see his physical size, you think you'll also see a certain type of player".

Saints set team record with six rushing touchdowns in rout of Bills
The Saints' defense held Buffalo to a total of 198 yards Sunday, not allowing a touchdown until the final two minutes of the game. The Buffalo Bills had been giddy over their new-and-improved defense this season under first-year coach Sean McDermott.

"If we'd won it would have been better, but it was a tough game, and a good game from me to learn from".

Now he's added Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook and Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke to the England squad preparing to face Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday, according to The Telegraph.

"I'm really not surprised with what they've done because they've shown that previously in the younger ages, they've shown that this week in training".

So much so he earned his first England call-up.

"At times it was hard for them to press us because of the composure we showed and the system we played, so I think it was a brilliant experience for our players".

"We've got to be a team that are switched on because against the very best if you get the pressing wrong then they'll carve you apart".

"I think that's one of the most pleasing things of working with this group over a period of time. I'll find out who played well tonight (for the Under-21s), who warrants the decision, and liaise with Aidy (Boothroyd) on that and go from there".
