Gareth Southgate adds another two uncapped outfield players to England squad

Abraham and Loftus Cheek set for England Starts Gareth Southgate adds another two uncapped outfield players to England squad

Gareth Southgate hailed the "really encouraging" performance of his England team after their 0-0 draw with Germany and praised debutants Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jordan Pickford.

Eric Dier will be the captain of the Three Lions and debut caps could await a host of players, including Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jordan Pickford and Tammy Abraham.

But despite the exuberance of a youthful side saw them match reigning World Cup champions Germany punch-for-punch, though Pickford was required to make a few outstanding saves in the first half.

The England midfield has often been accused of lacking the creativity to unlock the opposition but with fitness concerns over Jack Wilshere and his failure to secure a regular place in the Arsenal team, Southgate could have finally found the answer to that problem.

The central midfielder, who is on loan to Crystal Palace from the Blues, was handed his first England appearance from the start against Germany - and repaid Gareth Southgate's faith in him.

Germany played England in a football friendly earlier this year in Dortmund.

"I think there was a freshness and energy about it".

He beamed: "I'm really not surprised by what [the young players] have done because they've shown that previously in other ages and this week in training". He's got so many good attributes, top attributes, and that's why we put him into the team.

"I certainly learnt a lot in this game so it (was) a good night".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek will make his worldwide debut in midfield, while Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is also in line to win his first cap for England against the world champions.

"If we won it would have been better but I'm really happy", he told ITV Sport.

The 20-year-old has previously played for the Under-16s through to the Under-21s.

England: Butland; Jones, Stones, Maguire, Walker, Bertrand; Dier, Loftus-Cheek; Rashford, Lingard, Vardy.

"We'll see whether Phil [Jones] stays with us, definitely Angus [Gunn] following the injury to Jack [Butland]", Southgate confirmed when asked which players could be promoted for Tuesday's clash with Brazil.
