Everton's younger England representatives have had a successful week, with Dominic Calvert Lewin on target for the Under-20s last night.

The recent signing from Sheffield United scored what proved to be the two decisive goals in England U20s' 3-1 win over Germany in the second match of this month's four-nation tournament.

Calvert-Lewin, playing alongside his Toffees team-mates Kieran Dowell and Callum Connolly, netted twice in the second half.

England had opened their account in the tournament with a 2-0 win over the Netherlands on Wednesday in which Dowell started and Calvert-Lewin made a late substitute's appearance.

The Young Lions play their final game on Monday against the United States.

Meanwhile, Brendan Galloway and Mason Holgate both played the full 90 minutes as England's U21s booked their place in next year's European Championship Finals with a 1-0 win over Kazakhstan.

Straight-forward goals but he looks promising.

Kenny played too and Dowell was on the bench, and with all the hype over Liam Walsh, it looks like the future could be interesting for Koeman's Everton...

Someone talk to me. I'm trying to stay awake watching Malta trying to get the ball.

Hi Kim, I'm watching Rooney lumbering around the centre of the park, playing within himself, like your 45-year-old Dad, who used to be a striker, and is now playing for the local alehouse team.

Hi guys, just registered for this app so new to this blog.

This lad looks a real steal. I think we have definitely got ourselves a star in the making!

Competent strikes. Not spectacular but nice 'n' cool.

I would try Calvert-Lewin playing along side Kone against Man City if Lukaku can't make it.

And if Lukaku is fit, I would give Barkley a rest and play Calvert-Lewin up top with him. The young lad has been brought in because he is a talented player, so get him in and let's have a look.

Charsley and Duffus both played for the Irish U21 team. Duffus scored from a through ball from Charsley.

Incredible, we've got ourselves a promising 19-year-old striker who has shown he can tuck the ball away and people suddenly think we've got a star who should be playing in the Premier League.

He's nowhere near Premier League standard, and his goalscoring record at Sheffield Utd wasn't great as he didn't get many starts, ie, he has little experience. We bought him because he has promise and can be developed, allow the kid the time he needs.

Ryan (7) welcome to ToffeeWeb, I think you will enjoy it.

Regardless of the quality of the goals, scoring is a nice habit for any striker. Hopefully he can maintain this form and start to push for some opportunities around the first team.

Yes, welcome Ryan (7). Not sure if they told you about the annual subs for TW. Let me have your email address and I'll let you have details of where to send the dosh.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a potential superstar in the making. Give it 2 or 3 years and no doubt the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea and Man City will come knocking trying to buy him.

Give this lad an upgrade, first class. Right into Saturday's team!

I haven't seen Dominic in action. Whilst it seems he has potential and is one for the future, why not give him a chance in the first team? Not sure what he is like in relation to Marcus Rashford but he's had his chance and is not doing too badly.

If Rom is injured, he may prove to be a shock inclusion – a shock hopefully to Man City, what with step-over Stones and dribbling Billy Bravo in goal.

He can't do any worse than Kone and Valencia, though tbf, he hasn't had much game time.

Ryan, you've checked in .

.... but you can never leave.

Don't let the depressives drag you down!

What harm can playing him do? There is the slimmest of chances we might, just might, get a point. We aren't going to win, let's face it. This is an ideal game to give the lad a chance of first team action.

Is there any future for Kone or Niasse? No, of course not... so why not do something bold? Or take a chance on Henen. Or Dowell. Or just accept mediocrity and a defeat.
