Aston Villa winger Albrighton: Chelsea kid McEachran the future of English football

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton says Chelsea youngster Josh McEachran is set for greatness.

McEachran was highly praised by Stuart Pearce after his first England Under 21 start in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to Italy and Aston Villa winger Albrighton was similarly impressed.

He said: "I've seen him (McEachran) play before and there's something about him.

"He was absolutely superb (on Tuesday). It was about the 85th minute when he first gave ball away. He is just amazing, a superb player.

"What catches the eye is he's just so composed on the ball.

"He is the future of English football, no doubt about it. He has a massive future ahead of him."
