Indeed, Gareth Southgate is set to reward the 23-year old further following his first call-up to the senior team in the friendly game against Ryan Giggs’ side, which is being played in preparation for the Three Lions’ UEFA Nations League matches at home to Belgium and Denmark respectively.
Does Calvert-Lewin deserve the England call-up?
Calvert-Lewin has had a great start to the season
The call-up is a real testament to the hugely impressive start to the 2020/21 season that Calvert-Lewin has had under Carlo Ancelotti, scoring no fewer than nine goals in just six games over all competitions, as per Transfermarkt.
It is not just his goal contributions that have been impressive, either, as the striker has won a quite staggering 6.8 of his duels per game in the Premier League so far, as well as averaging 3.3 shots per match (via Sofascore).
Calvert-Lewin’s Euros ambition
Calvert-Lewin will now be looking to impress on the international stage as he looks to try and make Southgate’s squad for the European Championship next summer.
England captain Harry Kane is a near-certainty in terms of forward options but the Everton star may look to try and get ahead of the likes of Danny Ings and Tammy Abraham.
Calvert-Lewin’s England call-up is well-deserved
Ultimately, Calvert-Lewin’s England call-up is well-deserved given his impressive start to the campaign, but he will surely have to maintain his form if he is to be part of Southgate’s plans for next summer.
