New Blues signing scores on U20s debut

4 September  11 Comments  [Jump to last]
Dominic Calvert-Lewin notched his first goal for England U20s against Brazil today.

Everton's deadline-day acquisition from Sheffield United pulled a goal back for England to make it 2-1 on his debut at that level for his country.

Kieran Dowell also featured but the Lions couldn't find the equalizer.

At U19 level, Tom Davies captained England in a 1-0 defeat that also featured Nathan Holland as a substitute.

Phil Jagielka, meanwhile, was an unused substitute at senior level as Sam Allardyce started his England reign with a 1-0 win over Slovakia.

Rom and Dom – was this a Walsh appointment?

The club needs to be clear and confirm roles, and expectations of the new regime. I'm sure most of us have become predictive walkers of doom and is right, as somehow the press and media this summer went into hyper spam mode about EFC buying every available player of note.

As veterans, most will know the scorn these rumours must be treated with, but the club must change the Doubting Thomas culture alas we are born with as it's what we are used to for the last 30 years.

Come of age, EFC press, media communications team!

Christopher (#8),

Pray tell what is a "bad" goal?

This kid signed after Walsh – so perhaps he had a say in it.
The other kid from Coventry was signed prior to Walsh.

We'd been looking at him for quite a while, Unsy was the main instigator having known him from his Sheffield Utd days.

The goal was a downward header so that it bounced up into the net. Well taken and a hanging leap in the air allowed him to get above the defender. He looked lively in other aspects too so a great start to his international career.

Pretty lousy images, but good enough to make out the action.

Woeful defending by England for Brazil's two goals, especially the second.

Nice header by our new boy. It was a friendly which Brazil won 2-1, so I don't quite understand why they had penalties also at the end. Typically, England lost 3-2 on those too! However, to add to his match goal, Dominic was one of the two England players who DID convert his pen.
