Young quartet gets England U20s call

Thursday 3 November 2016  2 Comments  [Jump to last]
Four of Everton's young prospects have been called up to the England Under-20s squad that will participate in the Continental Cup this month.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Callum Connolly, Kieran Dowell and Jonjoe Kenny have all been named in the 24-man party by interim boss Paul Williams who is preparing the Young Lions for the 2017 Under-20s World Cup in South Korea next May.

England will travel to the Far Eastern nation to play Nigeria on 9th November, the hosts the following day, and then Iran on 12th November, who replaced Argentina in the friendly competition.

Everton understandably well represented, credit to Unsie and well done to the lads who were selected although, based on the showing against Chelsea U23s, all of them are obviously capable of better as they were outplayed by others in that game... Connolly by Feeney, Kenny by Robinson, Dowell and Calvert-Lewin had mediocre games at best. Will be interesting to see at what level Charsley is selected.

Just as Everton Under-23s get some competitive football in the Johnson's cup Checkatrade Trophy against teams from League One and Two, they are set to play for the England Under-20s, which is no use for Everton.

Just ask Ledson, who played for the England juniors one week and was then transferred to Oxford Utd the next. Calvert-Lewin may be better going back to Sheffield United to get some more competitive football.
