What The Papers Say - 15 March

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Local and many of the national papers, such as the Daily Star and Daily Express, are reporting that Gylfi Sigurdsson will be fit for the World Cup after it was revealed that the Icelandic midfielder would be out for six to eight weeks with a knee injury sustained in the win against Brighton at the weekend. Iceland kick off their World Cup campaign against Argentina in Moscow on 16 June.

The Echo looks at which players may be able to fill the void left by the 28-year-old, the options of Wayne Rooney, Davy Klaassen, Nikola Vlasic and Dominic Calvert-Lewin discussed.

Today's edition of the Daily Mail tips Everton forward Calvert-Lewin to be included when Gareth Southgate names his England squad on Thursday for friendly matches later this month against Holland and Italy.
