Some Everton fans were left gushing over the penalty scored by Dominic Calvert-Lewin for England versus the Republic of Ireland on Thursday.
As per a video of the goal shared by the official Twitter page of the Goodison Park faithful, the 23 year-old thumped his spot kick hard and high into the top corner of the net, leaving the goalkeeper with very little chance of saving it.
Can Everton do better than Calvert-Lewin up front?
The strike put Gareth Southgate’s team 3-0 up on the night thanks to earlier goals from Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho, and that is how the score finished with the Three Lions claiming victory in the friendly at Wembley Stadium.
The goal has made some supporters of the Merseyside club wonder as to whether Calvert-Lewin should be taking over penalty responsibilities for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, following the quite emphatic finish.

Just proves you don’t have to spend millions on a centre forward. The lad just gets better and better. NSNO. https://t.co/Qc6GqEbaPC
