I Had To Leave Chelsea To Get Playing Time - Ruben Loftus-Cheek

HOTSPUR midfielder, Eric Dier, took the captain's armband as an inexperienced England side played out an entertaining goalless friendly draw with World Champions, Germany, at Wembley Stadium.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has revealed that he had a "quite a strong vision" to leave Chelsea due to a lack of playing time.

But England also had some bright moments, with midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek making an assured debut and Tammy Abraham desperately close to scoring with his first touch in senior global football in the second minute.

Loftus-Cheek was awarded the Man of the Match gong for his display in London on Friday - a feat all the more impressive given he was making his senior debut for the Three Lions.
