Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek, now on loan at Crystal Palace, was one of five players to make his debut against the world's top-ranked side and produced a man-of-the match display.

The 21-year-old's calm display, especially when he dropped deep into midfield, won him praise from a variety of experts.

Loftus-Cheek will play in behind a front pairing of Jamie Vardy and Abraham, who is set to win his first cap after impressing while on loan at Swansea this season.

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

The England manager also chose not to include experienced players in the squad such as Daniel Sturridge, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere, and will have to pick an experimental side against the world champions.
