Liverpool legend Alan Hansen has questioned the excitement around England's young players.

Hansen wrote in the Telegraph: "The sense of realism needs to counterbalance any signs of encouragement, although we should acknowledge some positive developments.

"In (Tom) Cleverley, England possess a player with the potential to be very good at international level.

"Jack Wilshere’s return from injury can’t come soon enough, too, as he has the technical abilities we see in overseas stars.

"Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain completes a trio of exceptional young talents who offer hope for the future.

"But England need more than three."
