'Loftus-Cheek has got ability'

Former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise has praised midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek who was announced in England's World Cup squad.

Loftus-Cheek spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Crystal Palace and instantly became a fan favourite upon his arrival. A strong, versatile midfielder, Wise believes the 22-year-old will be a useful addition to Gareth Southgate's squad. 

"He was always going to be in his thoughts. Gareth was just waiting to see if he was going to get back [from injury], and he did," said Wise, who won 21 caps for England.

"He has got ability. In the game against Germany, I thought he was outstanding.

"He is somebody who can give you something different when you need it. He is a physical presence, he's got great ability and he can open doors when he runs at people.

"I like the boy, I always have. I'm pleased that he's in there."
