Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek believes England have a good chance of winning the summer World Cup with the ‘frightening talent’ within the group of players. The 22-year-old enjoyed a fruitful loan spell with Crystal Palace last term and he is now expected to play a key role for the Three Lions after being picked in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
Speaking to reporters, Loftus-Cheek admitted that the Three Lions have the capability to spring a surprise at this summer’s World Cup despite their average record at major tournaments of late, he said: “I think it would be stupid to rule us out. In training, you look about at the talent and it's frightening. I think we have a good chance. The squad is so young but so good at the same time. If we can deliver when it matters – and the boys can do that – we could have a really good tournament.”
