Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is yet to start for England in the ongoing European Championship.

Gallagher who has made two substitute appearances, is expected to start for England in their clash with Slovenia for their final Euros group game.

England has been far from impressive in midfield, and Gallagher is expected to come in for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Declan Rice who’s a mainstay in the Three Lions midfield, has said he’s looking forward to playing beside Conor Gallagher.

He said: “I’ve played against him when he was at Crystal Palace and Chelsea, and I’ve played with him in the academy team. He is a player I would love to have in my team.

“He works his socks off. You feel so safe and secure in there with him. He has surprised so many people this year with his ability on the ball.

“How he breaks forward with it, how he gets into the box and scores goals.”
