Redknapp feels Chelsea have landed themselves a world class talent.
"I love him as a player. He did some good things too," he told The Sun.
"He and Marouane Fellaini and Mousa Dembele ran the game in terms of possession, without posing too many problems though.
"I think they had two shots and so did we.
"It wasn’t an exciting match, more a big tournament game but with a positive result for England.
"Therefore we go forward to Euro 2012 on the back of a couple of good wins."
