Calvert-Lewin scores on his England debut

Dominic Calvert-Lewin took the field as a fully-fledged England player this evening in a friendly against Wales and grabbed his first goal with a typical first-half header.

The striker was rewarded for his blistering start to the season which has seen him score nine goals in just six games in all competitions as Everton have booked their place in the last eight of the Carabao Cup and emerged as the early pace-setters in the 2020-21 Premier League.

Calvert-Lewin was joined in the starting XI by his Goodison Park team-mate Michael Keane who lined up alongside Wolves’s Conor Coady and Liverpool’s Joe Gomez in a three-man defence.

Jordan Pickford made way for Nick Pope in what was an expected move fropm Gareth Southgate who said he was keen to give some of his back-up goalkeepers a chance to show what they can do ahead of the upcoming Uefa Nations League matches.

Calvert-Lewin’s first chance arrived after 13 uneventful minutes when he took it wide of the goalkeeper but from a very acute angle, he wasn’t able to affect more than a scuffed shot.

His second opportunity was all he needed as Jack Grealish engineered space for a cross and Calvert-Lewin rose to nod powerfully home from close range.

Coady doubled England’s lead inside the first 10 minutes of the second period with another header shortly before Calvert-Lewin made way for Mason Mount.

Pleased for him, surprised these internationals are going ahead though!

It’s not exactly a team to set the juices running (who watches England these days) but hopefully DCL will chip in with a goal or two to maintain his confidence levels, and Keane will maintain his decent start to the season and help keep a clean sheet at the back.

Good luck to Dominic tonight, he’s working hard, improving all the time, and so this is his reward, for the stick he’s taken, and brushed aside, just on this website alone!

Don’t understand the contempt for England I always support them. Gutted the Euros were cancelled, had some tickets. Dom was buzzing when he got the text, it means the world to him. Do the nation proud.

A memory of Coleman getting seriously injured playing for Ireland, and I just can’t wait for these England games to be over with no injuries to Everton players. Hope Dom enjoys his time and plays well though.

Well said, Kieran. I was going to post that I hated international games, hated the jingoism, hated, in fact,every aspect of it. Then I remenbered it gives me great pleasure when both Irelands win. That is why I supported Seamus when he got stick on here and why I was so evangelical about Shane Duffy.

The day Shane was sold was a like a fucking knife through my heart. God knows, I think I can say that it hurt me more than it hurt him. So, what I am saying is that international games are pointless unless they involve Ireland.

I feel a bit for DCL because that’s not a very good England side.

I think Iceland apart, Northern Ireland are the team that most punches above their weight. Good luck to them. The Republic, don’t have the depth they once did but they still have that fighting spirit also.

Meanwhile Gylfi has scored for Iceland.

Got to agree with Danny (2), why are these friendly internationals being played while the virus is still rearing it’s very ugly head,

Still if they are going ahead I hope Dominic continues his good early season form and naps a couple of goals for England while not having to worry about the result, that’s me not Dominic!!

It’s so teams can get prepared for the hugely important League of nations. We saw how meaningful that tournament is after last season ended with Germany embarrasingly relegated only for them to say “scrap that” we are just revamping the whole thing anyway so all those promotion/relegation battles were in vain. The other purpose of it being of course to qualify for Euro 2021 if you not among the 40 percent of European teams which have already qualified for that bloated tournament.

And didn’t you love Keane’s grin? He was SO happy for Dom.

Dat’s niiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Mike, how good must Dom feel right now. How wonderful, how good, what joy!! It must be up there with how I felt when I nailed” Occasion” in my Spelling Bee. Yeah, I know,… but you get your memories where you can!!!. These are great hours to be an Evertonian. Let us enjoy these great minutes.

Just go boy.

All very pedestrian, but DCL England’s best forward. Michael Keane their best defender.

Very generous of Wales’ centre backs to leave Dom the freedom of the six yard box to score.

I hope Carlo is taking notes and targets Gomez in the Derby. Just not switched on as a defender, is he?

A little bit of a hang in the air for that finish. Great to see him so confident right from the start.

Jay wood @28 I was thinking just that about Gomez. Will manes 14 day isolate be up. I take it he hasn’t been training

Well done, Dom, you’ve made us proud.

Now I can turn the game off.

Well done Dom. Biggest cheer of the night reserved for you being subbed, though.

 Posted
08/10/2020 at

DCL makes his debut, scores, gets subbed after 57 minutes. Ideal.

 Posted

Good to see him taken off.

 Posted
08/10/2020 at

Well Dom’s substitution suggests he’ll be starting in the next game I reckon.

 Posted
08/10/2020 at
21:18:40

That’s it for me, no sign of a Wales win but Calvert Lewin played well, now taken off.

 Posted
08/10/2020 at
21:19:51

Mike (32),:yes time for me to switch off as well, no further interest in this game.

 Posted
08/10/2020 at
21:20:10

I suspect Dom being subbed so early is a sign he’s going to be playing in the qualifiers.

And what a player Grealish looks. Shades of Gazza for me
