Post-draw with Germany Eric Dier ‘eyes’ England captaincy at World Cup

Joe Gomez praised Gareth Southgate for putting his faith in England's youngsters after the Liverpool defender was named man of the match in Tuesday's goalless draw with Brazil.

Occasionally though, as with Gundogan (Germany), Danilo (Brazil) and Bernardo Silva (Portugal) it gives a chance for a player to get valuable match time.

"We have played two of the best teams in the world, we didn't win, but we didn't lose".

"The on-field part might help to raise the level of your performance, the level of ownership and responsibility".

"We just showed resilience, guts and some outstanding defending and I'm incredibly proud".

As it's the international break, Shearer has turned his attention to the England team. "I have to aim to keep playing and try to improve and hopefully more opportunities will come".

Jason Cundy claims Joe Gomez is the future for England and his performance against Brazil has ended the international careers of Chris Smalling, Gary Cahill and Phil Jones. He has all the attributes of the top players I've worked with, but he's still only 20. He started anxiously, but his use of his the ball was good, he grew into the game. We had the best defensive record in Europe in qualifying and we've played the best two teams in the world and not conceded. Coutinho's return will be a much-needed injury boost going into the fixture-heavy winter months. "I would hope there's more of a connection, it felt like there was one there tonight between supporters and team".

Brazil nudged the accelerator at the start of the second half, Neymar and Jesus carving a chance for Coutinho, whose swept shot was closed down well by Hart.

Manager Tite, who has restored confidence, belief and goals to his national side, faced a lengthy inquisition from Brazilian reporters.

Southgate has been preaching the value of looking after the ball, of clever movement, of maintaining shape in defence and attacking with brio.

Brazil made a number of changes against Japan and should have most of their star players available for England.

But at least both sides have qualified for Russia next year, unlike four-time champion Italy. Their experience is way ahead of ours, so we are having to approach things differently.
