I really like this kid. He's coming across so humble in his interviews, but I love the arrogance he displays on the pitch.

 

I just wish he'd burn past people a bit more when he has the ball. He's a speedy fucker but turns back too much. Hopefully that changes the more at home he feels at this level.

Yeah, I'm thinking he will start being a little more aggressive in 1-on-1 situations once he gets used to the speed of the game. I'm sure he knows the expectations on him and is playing it a bit safe while also expressing himself in little ways.

Very impressive match for all the Everton players. Kenny is a promising right back for the future. Hope Seamus makes a full and rapid recovery. Until then, Kenny, Holgate, and even Davies provide plenty of depth at RB.

The way Kenny times his runs and interlinks play. Seems a very smart, deceptive player. His crossing is good, but the decision making on his crosses isn't always consistent.

The BBC report is awesome...

 

"England's 19-year-old Lookman dominated the game, striking a free-kick against the crossbar in between two nifty finishes. Everton team-mate Jonjoe Kenny drilled in a low cross for Lookman's first, before fellow Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin played the ball inside from the left flank and Lookman slotted the ball through the legs of keeper Erick Pineda."

 

No other team was mentioned: it's all Everton!

Turning into a great tournament for our young uns! Am I right in thinking they didn't think it worth sending the likes of Barkley and Wilshere to this a few years back? Could the backwards FA hierarchy have finally realised that the way you develop international players is bring them through their age groups??

 

Saying that, think Davies should have gone to this myself

They wanted him to but we asked for him to be excused.

Haha yes, I saw it but didn't feel the need to mention it, since Lookman did pretty much all the work on that one.

Thought it was a good knock down to get the ball under control and then a good strong run and cutback into the box to be honest.

Excellent from Lookman though.

Don't think that's the right decision. I understand wanting to rest him, avoid injuries etc. But the experience of going and bossing that tournament could have been great for Davies - didn't do a certain Lionel Messi any harm 12 years ago.

 

Anyway, I hope they go on and win it, could be key into turning the four we have out there into men ready for the Premier League.

It only that the tournament started while the season was ongoing and he'd have got a much lessened summer break. We said we had no problem with him being called up for the U21 side because he'd still get a decent break.

Lookman puts England ahead 2-1, easy rebound of goalie's save. Only 10 minutes left. Best players going forward have been Lookman, Liverpool's Solanke and Ojo (sub in for Dowell), and Kenny. Hope England can hang on. Like to see our boys on Sunday, Final.

 

Kenny is Coleman-esque. Lookman's dribbling is extremely impressive.

Dowell did not have a good performance. Ojo often dominated after coming on early in second half, and probably starts instead of Dowell on Sunday.

 

Hope it's on tv Sunday for you in England. Everton boys have made major impact in this tournament.

Solanke with superb long strike, 3-1. Sunday Final v. impressive Venezuela! In US on FoxSports 1, 6 am.

 

My lad's 21st! Win would be a nice pressie, any idea when 6am US is in Greek money? I shall investigate.

The lad is having an excellent tournament. All credit to Everton's scouts for finding another diamond in the rough. When the big teams spend absolute fortunes on big name players, it's really great to see Everton matching them by finding talented players the hard way.

And 11am UK time.

 

Going to be a tough sell to the wife on Sunday; Josh's 21st and he's going to want to watch the football at 1.00pm and the Canadian Grand Prix at 9.00pm :unsure:. Better brush up on my mediation skills.
