Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been in fine form of late. He has been banging them in for the Toffees since Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival and has been crucial in the Toffees’ return to form. There is a lot of competition, but DCL is now deserving of a call-up to the senior England squad.
The next England game is not until the end of March when the Three Lions take on Italy and Denmark. The Everton striker still has a lot of time to prove his worth to Gareth Southgate and his recent form surely puts him in with a shout for a place.
The 22-year-old has scored 10 goals in 22 Premier League appearances this season and is in the form of his life. His clever movement is getting him in the right places at the right time to score bags of goals for the Toffees. Whether it be with his head or his feet, Calvert-Lewin is proving himself to be a deadly finisher.
England are currently suffering from a striker injury crisis, which only increases the Everton man’s chances of a call-up. Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford are both out for a while, and Tammy Abraham limped off after Chelsea’s draw with Arsenal on Tuesday night.
Calvert-Lewin is yet to make a senior appearance for the national side, despite scoring in seven of his 17 England U-21 appearances. He will be competing with the likes of Callum Wilson and Danny Ings for a place in the squad but you could argue that he is the most well rounded and in-form striker England have got.
