England's squad for this summer's Under-20 World Cup has been announced and Everton players make up almost a quarter of it.
The Toffees provide five members of the 21-man squad, with defenders Jonjoe Kenny and Callum Connolly, midfielder Kieran Dowell and forwards Ademola Lookman and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all included.
The squad will meet up at St George's Park this afternoon before travelling to Osaka, Japan, for a training camp. The tournament is being held in South Korea.
England are in Group A and start their campaign against Argentina at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium on Saturday, 20 May. They then face Guinea at the same venue on Tuesday, 23 May.
Their final group game comes against the hosts in Suwon on Friday, 26 May.

With 7th assured, there's no reason we could not have played this team against Watford:
Kenny Holgate Williams Connolly
Davies Schneiderlin Barkley
Lookman Lukaku Dowell

As we will also be playing a Europa League qualifier in late June/early July, they can carry this momentum into that game.

Shame as it would've been a great opportunity.

Supplement them with a top quality goalie, beast of a centre-back (eg, Koulibaly), a world class No 10 and a gunslinger centre-forward, plus the resources already there (notwithstanding a clearout of that deadwood and the sale of Lukaku and Barkley), then we'll have a Champions League quality team.
In addition to the England U20s five, we have Liam Walsh, Harry Charsley and Antonee Robinson, all of whom IMO are exceptional talents. I hope we get Donkor back too.
Well done lads.

That might be to do with the fact that Holgate isn't a right back and Kenny is.

Did Lookman play in this match?

Try the middle option of your numbers - six!
Top 2 from each group automatically qualify and the 4 best 3rd place finishers also go to a last 16 (only 8 teams eliminated from the group stage!)
The hosts, South Korea - in the same group as England have just beaten Guinea 3-0, so they have an equal record with England.
And Lookman was an unused sub.
