England fans react to "expected team" to play Germany

Loftus-Cheek was one of five debutants on the night, with Jordan Pickford, Tammy Abraham, Joe Gomez and Jack Cork also featuring.

Dier, 23, wore the captain's armband in the global friendly clash that finished 0-0 at Wembley, and although it was a goalless game, it definitely gave some encouragement ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer as Gareth Southgate was forced to field a second-string side.

Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has set his sights on playing for England at next summer's World Cup.

"He's quite a quiet lad, so I'm hoping he gets a lift in confidence from how we see him, the level we think he's capable of".

Every England fan knows from watching Wright as a pundit; there are not many more men passionate about England's national team than him.

Germany boss Joachim Low is without World Cup winners Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, and Toni Kroos, but has the likes of Leroy Sane, Mesut Ozil and Julian Draxler in his starting line-up, while RB Leipzig left-back Marcel Halstenberg makes his Germany debut at the age of 26 - what a rise it's been!

Dominic Solanke, Lewis Cook and Angus Gunn have been drafted into the England squad for the first time after Phil Jones became the eighth player to withdraw from Gareth Southgate's group.

"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".

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

The 20-year-old has previously played for the Under-16s through to the Under-21s. "I just want to play more football", the 21-year-old said.

"He's an exciting player - we've got a few exciting players".

"They [the u21s] don't have a game and for them to be involved against Brazil would be a brilliant experience for them".
