Blues Youngster Hunting More Goals

by Rob Urbani

Dominic Calvert-Lewin hopes to take his fine run of goalscoring form to Anfield on Saturday.

The forward goes into the Merseyside derby boosted by two strikes in as many games for Club and country.

Calvert-Lewin followed up his maiden goal for Everton against Hull City 12 days ago with another for England Under-20s in their 2-0 win over Senegal on Tuesday.

The former Sheffield United attacker was back at USM Finch Farm on Thursday and took part in a live Facebook interview after his morning training session.

“It’s been an unbelievable couple of weeks,” said Calvert-Lewin. “To score the two goals which I have done, one of them my first for Everton, it’s big relief and weight off my shoulders. As a striker you aim to score goals so to get my first one, it was an unbelievable feeling, really.

“As you’d expect [after scoring] it was complete excitement. Relief as well. I think my facial expression showed what it meant to me. It would be nice to get a few more.”

As part of the interview, Calvert-Lewin answered questions ranging from his footballing hero to the players he had grown closest to at the Club since his move from Bramall Lane.

He also revealed the best piece of advice he’d been given to date in his fledgling career.

“I would probably say something from my dad,” added the forward. “He used to say that you never know who’s watching - and that’s wherever you are playing at whatever level. 

“Whoever you are playing against, always give it your best. I’d like to think that advise has helped me - Everton might have been watching one game and I’m here now.”
