Billy Gilmour Claimed To Be Technically Superior
Gary Neville heaped up praise on Chelsea youngster, Billy Gilmour after England’s draw against Scotland.
Gilmour made his first start for his country in the 0-0 drub showing at Wembley and stood out.
Of course, England were miles away from their best, struggling to get any sort of connection going in attack. Gilmour did not hesitate to showcase his abilities, spiking passes all across the pitch.
“He came into a cup game against Liverpool in his first game [for Chelsea] and he was brilliant,” England and Manchester United legend Neville told ITV Sport.
“His temperament is fantastic, he accepts the ball, watching those clips, it’s a sobering experience for England.
“Gilmour, McGinn and McGregor were better on the ball than England midfield players but not just that, Tierney, Hanley and McTominay at the back were better on the ball passing it into midfield, Stones, Mings, Rice and Phillips struggled to get that build-up play right last night.
“Gilmour was always available, England don’t have that player.
“People might point at Kalvin Phillips but he is not as good on the ball, at accepting the ball, as Gilmour. Technically, he’s a little bit better.”
Will Gilmour start more games for Chelsea next season? He certainly deserves it considering the quality he is showing right now.
