England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek insists that he 'will not be intimidated' at this summer's World Cup in Russia.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has insisted that he 'will not be intimidated' at this summer's World Cup in Russia.

The 22-year-old has only made two appearances for England, but has been included in Gareth Southgate's squad for the 2018 World Cup, which will get underway in the middle of next month.

Loftus-Cheek, who impressed on loan at Crystal Palace from Chelsea during the 2017-18 campaign, has said that he '100% feels ready' to make an impression despite his lack of experience at this level.

"100% I feel ready. I know how to deal with pressure," Loftus-Cheek told reporters. "I won't be intimidated by any player or team. I think that is fundamental in football if you want to do well and I'll take that mindset into the World Cup."

Loftus-Cheek made his England debut against world champions Germany in November.
