“I know what it’s like, until your future gets sorted it can be difficult. Everything is a blur, you’re frustrated a little bit. I think he’s someone who will blossom with every level he steps up.

“For two tournaments England haven’t had a player who can bring the ball out of defence, who can put his foot on the ball and go, ‘Right, let me control it a little bit or step into midfield.’

“You need composure at the back because you sometimes need to make that extra pass. We haven’t had that ability to do that.
