Gareth Southgate admits Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has given him 'plenty to think about' for England

Gareth Southgate heaped praise on Liverpool defender Joe Gomez after he excelled on his full England debut against Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday night and admitted he has given him “plenty to think about”.

The 20-year-old turning in a display of calm authority that just nudged him ahead of fellow defenders John Stones and Harry Maguire in the man-of-the-match reckoning.

Southgate was happy to join in the chorus of praise for Gomez, who was one of several surprise call-ups for this double-header.
