Ross Barkley completed 120 minutes for England in the Nations League – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter were blown away by the quality of his performance.

Gareth Southgate’s side were beaten 3-1 in the Nations League semi-finals and will have to face off against Switzerland in a third-place match.

Marcus Rashford netted a first-half penalty to put the Three Lions in front, but Matthijs de Ligt scored a header in the second-half to send the game into extra-time.

A lapse in concentration from John Stones in possession lead to the decisive Dutch goal in the first-half of extra-time, which deflected in off Kyle Walker for an own goal.

Barkley was then lazy with his back-pass late on and Holland capitalised to score a third goal with Quincy Promes.
