Dom Solanke to join senior England squad for Brazil game

Dom Solanke to join senior England squad for Brazil game”

Everton's Calvert-Lewin and Liverpool forward Solanke, Under-20 World Cup winners in the summer, as well as Leicester winger Gray, are part of the England under-21 squad for Friday's European Championship qualifier in Ukraine, but are expected to join the senior squad if they come through the match unscathed.

Goals: Solanke 16′, Lukyanchuk (OG) 62′.

They've taken 13 points out of a possible 15, and Boothroyd's England were captained by Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook, with many regulars with the England senior side for their friendly against Germany at Wembley.

And the Young Lions extended their lead on the hour, through an own goal from right-back Pavlo Lukyanchuk, with Solanke involved in the buildup.

Everton's Kieran Dowell, who is on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, set up Solanke's opener - and the goalscorer played the ball to Gray in the move which led to the second-half own goal.

Cook embarked on a marauding run before playing in Solanke, who in turn fed Gray and his risky cross was turned into his own net by the unfortunate Lukianchuk.

Flanked by wide duo of Ademola Lookman and Demarai Gray, Solanke served to spearhead Boothroyd's attack, and got England off to the flawless start with a goal on 16 minutes.

To cap off a successful evening, Norwich City's James Maddison was brought on for his Young Lions debut and nearly made an instant impact - as his lofted free-kick caused mayhem in the home side's backline before the ball eventually scrambled clear.

Everton have potentially received an injury blow ahead of their game against Crystal Palace following the global break after Tom Davies had to return home early from the England Under-21 squad.
