Ian Wright gives verdict on Conor Gallagher’s England debut

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has hailed Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, who is currently on loan at Crystal Palace, after his England debut against San Marino on Monday night.

Gallagher was denied a debut goal when his effort came back off the post but Wright was impressed with another polished performance, insisting he is now far too good to be playing for the Under-21 side.

“With what I’ve seen from Conor Gallagher, I watched him play for the Under-21s the other day, he looked streets ahead of that,” Wright told ITV.

“It was good to see him play in this game, obviously this isn’t a big test for him but what you saw him do was everything right.

“He didn’t come on and take the mick, he did everything right and that is the kind of player he is.

“That is the kind of player you want to see, you want to see players of that calibre getting towards the full international squad instead of playing in Under-21s.”
