Loftus-Cheek is preparing for his senior England debut when he starts for the Three Lions against Germany on Friday, and manager Gareth Southgate hopes the 21-year old can prove his quality at the national stadium.

Loftus-Cheek was named Man of the Match for his performance from an attacking midfield position, growing into the role to produce an accomplished creative display.

"It took him 10 minutes to realise he's OK here".

Everton star Pickford and Chelsea youngster Loftus-Cheek, who is on loan at Crystal Palace, stood out in an inexperienced England side in the 0-0 draw at Wembley.

"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", added Wilkins.

"[The debut] could have been better - if we'd won, it would have been better", he told ITV.

"I'm really not surprised with what they've done because they've shown that previously in younger ages and in the week in training, there's been an energy about the group". I certainly learned a lot in this game.

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

Both sides played well despite depleted lineups and should consider this a worthy and encouraging tuneup as they begin looking toward next summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

England's best chance of the half came when Abraham's shot on the turn was deflected just a whisker wide off Antonio Rudiger.

"They're going to have periods in the game where they control possession, but I felt they didn't really hurt us on any occasion when they did that".

"And we had our periods, broke well at times and are actually disappointed we haven't scored".
