Watching England has been tough for fans for some time now but their young debutants on Friday against Germany changed things somewhat.

Jordan Pickford made a couple of excellent saves to preserve his clean-sheet but it was Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek who stole the show.

Given a free role as one of the attacking free Loftus-Cheek was calm in possession, drove forward with purpose and generally gave the England fans something to cheer about.

And Twitter was very excited.
