Fu­ture looks promis­ing as new boys put on a good show

The kids are, in­deed, all right

All Eng­land’s start­ing debu­tants im­pressed in phases. Jor­dan Pick­ford’s saves from Timo Werner were smartly made; Joe Hart has fur­ther com­pe­ti­tion. Tammy Abra­ham was con­fi­dent and de­mand­ing and might have scored with his first touch while Ruben Lof­tusCheek grew im­pres­sively into the fray. His con­fi­dence was bol­stered from the mo­ment he nut­megged Mar­cel Hal­sten­berg af­ter 18 min­utes. It was his clipped pass for Jamie Vardy which might have led to a lead and his driv­ing run which kick-started Eng­land af­ter the break. He boasts the pres­ence and skill and lacks only a ruth­less streak and game aware­ness. Yet this was all rather promis­ing.
