England are not returning from Germany with the result they would have liked, but it was a debut to remember for Michael Keane.
All the pre-match pomp surrounding Lukas Podolski helped the Burnley defender to go under the radar, and but for one slip-up against Leroy Sane, he enjoyed an impressive start to his England career.
Glenn Hoddle handed him his shirt prior to the game, and it looks like he’ll be winning many more caps thanks to a brilliant season with the Clarets.
It hasn’t gone unnoticed, and the Daily Mail report that both Liverpool and Everton are now keen to approach him at the end of the season.
“It’s flattering to see, but I’m focused on Burnley,” the centre-back said.
“We’ve got nine games left in the season and we need to make sure we remain in the league.
“But to see things like that can only mean you’re playing well.”
It doesn’t sound like he’s willing to rule anything out.
Despite being a former Manchester United defender, he would be a great fit for Liverpool, who are likely to strengthen with at least one more centre-back.
Jurgen Klopp may well regret selling Mamadou Sakho to Crystal Palace after their falling out, as apart from Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, he doesn’t have many top-class options.
Ragnar Klavan has been a capable back-up, but Keane already looks like a more long-term option.
