Ruben Loftus-Cheek went to the 2018 World Cup as a member of Gareth Southgate’s squad after a breakout season with Crystal Palace.

According to this week’s Straight Outta Cobham podcast by the Athletic, RLC is still keeping a faint hope alive of making it to the Euros with his country again this summer. He will have to stay playing regularly – and soon. But if he believes, we all do.
