Rio Ferdinand has claimed that 's two Champions League matches against over the past week 'could not have gone any worse' for .
Tomori endured a difficult game at Stamford Bridge last week as Milan slipped to a 3-0 defeat, and he was then sent off in the first half after dragging back inside the penalty area in Tuesday's return fixture which the Blues went on to win 2-0.

'The last two games, he's probably showed two elements of his game where Gareth Southgate's thinking: "I was justified in not picking him,"' Ferdinand told BT Sport after Tuesday's match.

'Lapses in concentration for the penalty, allowing Mason Mount to get in behind him, and in the first game, his body position and the way he tried to make a clearance for the Aubameyang goal. 
'Two big games, showpiece games for him to really put a marker down and stake his claim for a place in the England team.

But these two games couldn't have gone any worse for him in that sense. 
Tomori was called up to England's 28-man squad for the latest internationals against Italy and Germany last month.

However, he was left out of the matchday squad when the Three Lions took on Germany at Wembley, signalling that he is only on the fringes of the team at the moment.
With the World Cup just over a month away, he appears to be sweating on his place on the plane to Qatar.
Ferdinand would like to see Tomori given a chance to show what he can do, but has conceded that Southgate may be having further doubts about the centre-back after his last two performances in Europe. 
'He's young and he'll come again. I still feel he's worth an opportunity to go and prove himself in an England shirt,' Ferdinand continued.
'But these games will have definitely gone against him in Gareth's eyes, I'm sure.'
