As much as England owed their 0-0 draw with Brazil to a resolute all round team performance, it is impossible to ignore the standout performance of young Joe Gomez.
The Liverpool defender who has been making waves at club football this season, marked his first international start with a very impressive performance against the offense-heavy Brazilians.
Gomez was outstanding at the back tirelessly putting in the work and the tackles to ensure another clean sheet for the Three Lions.
Gomez also provided what was one of the more exciting moments of the match when he executed an inch-perfect sliding tackle on Paulinho that just about epitomised his unreal passion and desire for the game. Check it out below –
