Newcastle United and England hero Alan Shearer has now spoken about Anthony Gordon's England debut.

Speaking on The Rest Is Football podcast with Gary Lineker and Micah Richards, Alan Shearer has now given his verdict on Anthony Gordon's first senior appearance for his country which came in the 1-0 defeat against Brazil on Saturday night.

It wasn't the greatest night for The Three Lions who looked toothless without Harry Kane up front, but Newcastle winger Anthony Gordon managed to create a few chances for himself but was unfortunately unable to beat Brazil 'keeper Bento.

Gordon was actually one of the bright spots in the fairly low-key England performance and will have done enough to keep himself in Gareth Southgate's thoughts with another friendly taking place tomorrow night against Belgium.

Alan Shearer thought Gordon looked 'dangerous' on Saturday

The lightning-quick winger did enough to impress local hero, Alan Shearer who was full of praise for the 23-year-old on the latest episode of the podcast.

“I thought Anthony Gordon did everything he could do.

“He looked a threat, he worked so hard trying to cut inside on his right foot and had a couple of dangerous efforts. He was without doubt one of the few positives on the night and he can be very pleased with his debut.”

Gordon can still get into England's Euro 2024 squad

Gordon has received a lot of praise for his debut, even from Brazilian Bruno Guimaraes who admitted he was very happy when he found out that Gordon would be starting for England on Saturday.

Now Anthony Gordon potentially has three more England games to impress Southgate enough to book his spot in the Euro 2024 squad.

As long as he keeps doing what he's doing, there should be no reason why he's not on that plane come the summer.
