Joe Gomez marking Neymar a highlight among England debutants

Gareth Southgate says England earned a respectable result against a Brazil side he considers the best in the world.

It might not have provided any goals, but England's friendly doubleheader against Germany and Brazil yielded plenty of talking points as Gareth Southgate turned to youth in a way no England manager has done in years.

Six players -- Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jordan Pickford, Tammy Abraham, Joe Gomez, Jack Cork and Dominic Solanke -- made their senior England debuts across the two matches. ESPN FC takes a closer look at how they fared.

England show composure and grace in friendly vs. Brazil; will it carry over?

Gareth Southgate says England earned a respectable result against a Brazil side he considers the best in the world.

A bore draw? While it is true that the biggest cheer of the night was reserved for the 65th-minute paper aeroplane that floated serenely towards the back of Brazil goalkeeper Allison's head, to dismiss this game as a snorefest would be churlish. There were positives here, a growing sense of composure and a refusal to be rattled by one of the top international sides in the world.

Manager Gareth Southgate spoke afterwards about the disconnect between the England team and their supporters and his hopes...

Inexperienced England stifle, earn admirable draw vs. full-strength Brazil

Gareth Southgate says England earned a respectable result against a Brazil side he considers the best in the world.
Neymar hails Brazil's ability to create chances against England, noting the Three Lions' propensity to defend.
Gabriel Jesus explains why he thinks Brazil's scoreless draw against England was reflective of their entire year.

LONDON -- Here are three points from Wembley as England and Brazil played out a 0-0 draw in an international friendly.

1. Goalless draw uneventful but not pointless

Two friendlies, 180 minutes, 20 players used and no goals. Those bare facts might lead you to conclude that England's two games over this last week have been a waste of time. That would be the negative spin, but the positive is that Gareth Southgate's severely depleted side have not lost to two of the favourites for next summer's...

Reliving Zlatan Ibrahimovic's wonder goal against England five years later

Remember where you were five years ago when you saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic score THIS goal against England?

With 12 minutes remaining of a friendly against Sweden in Stockholm, five years ago this week, England were 2-1 up and playing pretty well. Considering this was a fairly experimental team, with Roy Hodgson giving debuts to six different players, and they were still getting over the relative chaos left by Euro 2012 and its build-up, it was looking like a decent evening for England. Then Zlatan Ibrahimovic happened.

There were plenty of other reasons to make this friendly notable: it was Steven...

Who are the best young English managers? Howe, Monk, Nolan and more

With Bournemouth in 19th place through 10 matches, Eddie Howe backs his players ahead of a critical month for the Cherries.
TBD
Eddie Howe has long been tipped for the Arsenal job.

There is always a clamour for top English clubs to give chances to young English managers. But who are they? Iain Macintosh looks at the nine hopefuls who are 40 or younger.

EDDIE HOWE (Bournemouth)

Two weeks away from his 40th birthday, Eddie Howe is enduring his toughest season yet. A summer of what appeared to be sensible spending hasn't yet been rewarded with results. Bournemouth, the club Howe led to the Premier League in 2015, are only just outside the relegation zone. But if he can come through...

Why has England's Ruben Loftus-Cheek fallen through the cracks?

Gareth Southgate is full of praise for Ruben Loftus-Cheek after his performance on his England debut against Germany.

For the many who derided Ruben Loftus-Cheek's maiden England call-up as ludicrously premature, the 21-year-old's spectacularly assured debut display against Germany in the 0-0 draw on Friday no doubt came as quite a shock.

People more familiar with his talent and his story, however, know his emergence as a national talking point is long overdue.

Throughout his academy career, coaches, scouts and other observers inside and outside Chelsea spoke about Loftus-Cheek with awe reserved only for the truly...
