Let's be honest, the teams England played in last years world cup were dreadful, at best championship level standard, so you'd expect him to look comfortable, which he did. When you pitch him against Mane, Sane, Hazard and Zaha, they take the piss and he looks shocking.

Neverat the required standard for a top 6 teams
I think he played well for England was because he had Walker in the back three behind him which allowed him to play a more attacking and concentrate on crosses

He was the perfect example of “don’t judge a player on a summer tournament”. Didn’t both Croatia goals come from his side? He didn’t have a great season pre World Cup and has actually got worse the more he played for whatever reason.

Anyway, he seems like a nice guy and I hope he does really well in Spain (I wish loads more English players would go abroad as I think it’s held us back in the past by them all staying here).
