One fan wrote on X: ‘Type of thing we used to see Barcelona doing and be in awe of, now our national team is doing it. Crazy.’

Another said: ‘Stuff like this makes me realise just how good pro footballers are,’ while a third added: ‘That is scarily good.’

A fourth wrote: ‘If you ever wondered how much better than you a professional footballer is, this should answer that for you.’

Another also said: ‘These are incredible levels. Superb touch and speed of awareness to play the right pass each time! And this is Walker trying to chase mown who is no slouch!’

Ferdinand has also questioned manager Gareth Southgate’s decision to leave out Raheem Sterling.

Speaking on his podcast, he said: ‘I don’t know what he’s done, whose nose he has put out of join. I don’t know what’s happened.

‘But for him to not be in the England squad is beyond me. Listen, there’s a lot of talent don’t get me wrong, but if we’re talking form then he’s got more goals and assists or goal involvements than Rashford and Grealish put together.

‘Has he been tried and tested at the top level? He was England’s best player at the Euros.’
