Everton attacker praises teammate following England heroics

Dominic Calvert-Lewin described his Everton team-mate Ademola Lookman as brilliant after the young forward scored a goal to lead England to the final of the U-20 World Cup.

Lookman scored the second goal as the Young Lions recorded a 3-1 victory over Italy. Everton, who have become renowned for turning young talent into stars, have five players in the side four of whom started against Italy in Jeonju.

Calvert-Lewin said, “Ade was brilliant today and Dom was excellent as well, but it was the team performance that won us the game and it was the best team performance that we’ve put together in the tournament so far.”

From the Everton youngsters in the squad, Lookman has netted three times in the tournament while Calvert-Lewin and Kieran Dowell have netted once each.  Jonjoe Kenny has been arguably the young Lions best player of the tournament while Callum Conolly has yet to feature.
