The former Manchester United and ITV pundit Gary Neville has given huge prise to Chelsea and Scotland’s midfielder Billy Gilmour and says that he’s the player that England are missing in the centre of midfield, someone who can pull the strings and be cool and composed on the ball. Graeme Souness has called him the best player on the pitch between England and Scotland at only 20 years of age.

Speaking on ITV Sport, Neville said: “He came into a cup game against Liverpool in his first game [for Chelsea] and he was brilliant. “His temperament is fantastic, he accepts the ball, watching those clips, it’s a sobering experience for England.
“Gilmour, McGinn and McGregor were better on the ball than England midfield players but not just that, Tierney, Hanley and McTominay at the back were better on the ball passing it into midfield, Stones, Mings, Rice and Phillips struggled to get that build-up play right last night.
