Quintet Eye World Cup Progress


Everton’s England Under-20 internationals can book a place in the World Cup knockout phase by beating Guinea on Tuesday morning.

The Toffees have five players - Jonjoe Kenny, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Kieran Dowell, Callum Connolly and Ademola Lookman - representing the Young Lions in South Korea, where the tournament is being held.

Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Argentina, which included a goal from Calvert-Lewin and two assists by Dowell, has already put England in a strong position to advance to the round of 16.

Paul Simpson’s side are top of Group A and three points against Guinea, who were beaten by South Korea in their opener, would see England progress.

Kenny, Calvert-Lewin, Dowell and Connolly all started in England’s first match, with Lookman an unused substitute.

Tuesday’s game against Guinea kicks off at 8am (UK time) and is taking place at the Jeonju Stadium, a host venue at the 2002 World Cup.
