Cole Palmer was only given a 20-minute cameo appearance in England’s final group stage game against Slovenia.

Cole Palmer added spark to England’s game after his introduction, and drew praise from Manchester United legend Roy Keane after the game.

Speaking in the ITV studio after the game, Keane said Southgate would be under ‘huge pressure’ to start Palmer in England’s next game.

Palmer who had been on the sidelines all game, has admitted he would relish the opportunity to represent England.

“It’s always nice to hear, especially from someone like Roy Keane who played internationally and at Manchester United,” Palmer said of the comments made by Roy Keane.

“It’s up to the manager now what he wants to do.

“I’m full of belief. After the season I’ve had, I don’t see why I should be down. I’ll just try and take every chance and make an impact.”

On his cameo, Palmer added: “It was exciting – I really enjoyed it. I just tried to play my game when I came on and I think I did that. I tried to create chances and be positive.”
