Gareth Southgate has been stubborn to play Cole Palmer for England, despite calls from every corner.

The England boss eventually gave in, as he gave Palmer a second-half cameo against Slovenia.

As expected, Palmer impressed and was the team’s best player in those few minutes against Slovenia.

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou was on pundit duty with ITV, and lavished praise on the 22-year-old, whom he has faced twice in the Premier League.

The Australian said: “Every time he’s got the ball he’s looking to eliminate opposition, whether that’s individual players or lines of the opposition.

“Every one of his incursions takes somebody out of the game.

“When you have a player like that, irrespective of how the opposition set up in defensive stance, he will always find that gap, he will always find those spaces.

“His first thought is, ‘how can I eliminate one of the opposition or a line of the opposition’. Those kind of players are rare.”
