Former Everton boss Howard Kendall fears there's too much expected by England fans for Ross Barkley.
Barkley made his England debut last week against Moldova.
"Itâ€™s too early," Kendall told the Daily Mail of the 19-year-old. "He has to be consistent at league level over a period of time â€” and then be judged. Itâ€™s too early now. A factor, of course, is the limited supply of players for the England team. So theyâ€™re wishing him on. And itâ€™s quicker than it should be.
"Theyâ€™re jumping him forward because of the number of foreign players, but the boy needs patience â€” woah."
