Rees Greenwood sends message to Jordan Pickford on Twitter

Pickford gets his first senior start after Butland broke his finger in training

It was a night of experimentation, a time to blood the youngsters in a game that could be the start of a new-look England team and a 0-0 draw with world champions Germany was a decent outcome.

Eric Dier will be the captain of the Three Lions and debut caps could await a host of players, including Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jordan Pickford and Tammy Abraham.

He said: "To go to the World Cup - it's a long season and I still have to improve".

Gareth Southgate's England squad had been crippled with injuries in the run-up to the friendly and it gave the former England Under-21 boss the opportunity to hand some of his former starlets a chance.

"I'm really not surprised because of what I saw before those boys came in and what I've seen in training".

"He's quite a quiet lad, so I'm hoping he gets a lift in confidence from how we see him, the level we think he's capable of".

"He has so many good attributes".

On the on-loan Crystal Palace midfielder, Southgate told his post-match press conference: "He's a player I've watched do that from under-16 level and despite his size and his appearance and the way he plays, he's not hugely confident at times".

Liverpool striker Solanke opened the scoring in Kiev, continuing the fine global form that saw him win the Golden Ball as England lifted the Under-20 World Cup in the summer.

"I don't think the wider public maybe would be as aware of him, you'd have to follow him very closely, but we believe in him and we believe in the others that we played".

"If we'd won it would have been better, but it was a tough game, and a good game from me to learn from".

He made some fine saves between the sticks, though he got social media talking following his pin-point distribution.

The 20-year-old has previously played for the Under-16s through to the Under-21s.

But it was Loftus-Cheek who caught the eye in particular and it is likely the 21-year-old will keep his place in the side for Tuesday's Friendly against Brazil.

"I'm pretty confident this England team could stay up".
