Many Everton fans have been left gushing as some comments emerged from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The game at Goodison Park against West Ham United has been dedicated to the No Room For Racism campaign, from which the Merseyside club continues to urge its supporters to challenge and report discriminatory behaviour when and wherever they see it.
Should Calvert-Lewin start for England?
Ahead of the match against the Hammers in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, Calvert-Lewin has been speaking about his own experience with racism, and lifted the lid on his ambition to see it stamped out of society for good: “It is my fervent hope that through a more inclusive and diverse world, racism will naturally filter out of society.”
It is a great message to put across from a great character, who as a Premier League star and England international will certainly have plenty of people looking up to him, and a lot of Blues were very appreciative of what he said.

“Well done Dom, absolute brilliant message.”
“A truly wonderful young man. Evertonians are rightly proud of him.”
