RUBEN LOF­TUS-CHEEK ENG­LAND, AGE 22

The Wharf - - World Cup Guide -

He was a sur­pris­ing se­lec­tion, but one that could pay off, with Glen Hod­dle com­par­ing him to former Germany play­maker Michael Bal­lack. If that com­par­i­son proves true, he’ll be a great as­set in a more at­tack-minded Eng­land set-up.
