Fikayo Tomori has just ruined his world cup chances-Ferdinand

Rio Ferdinand has claimed that AC Milan’s two Champions League matches against Chelsea over the past week ‘could not have gone any worse’ for Fikayo Tomori.

Tomori endured a difficult game at Stamford Bridge last week as Milan slipped to a 3-0 defeat, and he was then sent off in the first half after dragging back Mason Mount inside the penalty area in Tuesday’s return fixture which the Blues went on to win 2-0.

The 24-year-old has only picked up three caps for England, despite some supporters calling for him to be used more regularly. Ferdinand thinks Southgate will feel vindicated after Tomori’s two outings against his former club.

‘The last two games, he’s probably showed two elements of his game where Gareth Southgate’s thinking: “I was justified in not picking him,”‘ Ferdinand told BT Sport after Tuesday’s match.

‘Lapses in concentration for the penalty, allowing Mason Mount to get in behind him, and in the first game, his body position and the way he tried to make a clearance for the Aubameyang goal.

‘Two big games, showpiece games for him to really put a marker down and stake his claim for a place in the England team. But these two games couldn’t have gone any worse for him in that sense.

‘He’s young and he’ll come again. I still feel he’s worth an opportunity to go and prove himself in an England shirt,’ Ferdinand continued.

‘But these games will have definitely gone against him in Gareth’s eyes, I’m sure.’
