Joe Gomez played a crucial role in England’s 3-2 victory over Spain last night in the UEFA Nations League.
Liverpool’s 21-year-old started alongside Harry Maguire at the back, in place of Manchester City’s John Stones, and did as good a job as could be expected.
Up against the likes of Rodrigo and Iago Aspas, Gomez produced a performance of utter composure, showing physicality when necessary.
He knows when to put his foot on the ball and pass, or throw himself in front of it!
It’s no wonder he and Virgil van Dijk have developed such a fantastic partnership this season, with many England fans recognising it as probably the best in the Premier League after seeing Gomez at first hand.
Normally, England fans on Twitter just say moronic things about Jordan Henderson, so it’s quite nice to see such consistent praise of a Red.
