All 3 have been part of this set up through the ages and have grown each year, this is a chance to pit themselves against some of the best youngsters in Europe and learn even more about themselves. It will firstly be tough to get in this side, then interesting to see where they play Callum Connolly he could be in midfield or a full back.
The downside is they will see Dowell and Walsh training with the first team, but it shows how tough it is to get in the England squad if those two haven't made it.

Your 'bad career move' comment is ridiculous.

If any of those 3 players don't make the Everton squad this season, they will probably be loaned out to League One or Two, so playing for the England Under-19s would be fruitless in such circumstances at the moment.

If he likes what he sees, then he can promote them to whatever level he sees fit.

Even being a couple of weeks away, these 3 young players with the England Under-19s will be in catch-up mode with their contemporaries. While playing for England can damage a young player's career, Sterling, Kane and Alli all had very poor Euros.

Would you feel the same about U-16 players going away to play with their country?
Is it just playing for England that damages young players or is it any country? What do Kane's and Ali's poor Euros have to do with anything? They had a good season and rightly made the squad for the Euros. What has them playing for England done to damage their careers? Do you think it's all downhill for them now after a poor tournament?
Rooney had a great Euros when he was 18 and went on to be successful.
I'm struggling to see any logic in your argument other than you don't want Everton players to play for their country.

Pre-season is the most important part of the season as Everton players prepare for another season. Deulofeu is captain of the Spanish Under-21s, but that has no bearing on him getting into the Everton first team.

We'll agree to disagree that lads of 18 years should stay around and maybe or maybe not train with the first team instead of playing for 2-3 weeks against the best their age group has to offer.
