Spain international Marcos Alonso has raved about Ross Barkley’s performance for England during their impressive 3-2 win against his national side on Monday night.
The Chelsea teammates were on opposing ends as Gareth Southgate’s men ran riot in the first half, with Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford adding to Raheem Sterling’s brace inside 39 minutes.

Southgate opted to play ?Barkley in a more advanced role than his midfield partners, and despite being on the other side, ?Alonso was impressed with what he saw from his club teammate.
“He’s a great player,” said Alonso, as quoted by Chelsea’s official website. “He showed it not just last night but against Croatia (last Friday) too.
