The 21 year old Arsenal midfielder did not have a full pre-season campaign after two injury-hit seasons.

“Jack is still looking for full fitness,” says Hodgson.

“That is why we took him off in the second half.

“We certainly saw a much more effective Jack against Moldova, but he still did his work against Ukraine and, tactically, did all the things I asked of him.”
