Plenty of Everton fans have praised Dominic Calvert-Lewin after his gesture to Gareth Southgate while on duty for England.
As shared in a video from Football Daily, the 23-year old decided to remove his hat when he met the Three Lions manager, about which Southgate was chuffed.
Indeed, Calvert-Lewin was looking to make a good impression on the coach and it worked, as he followed up with a goal in his debut for the senior team as England ran out 3-0 winners against Ryan Giggs’ Wales in a friendly at Wembley Stadium.
The call-up is a real testament to the hugely impressive start to the 2020/21 season that the striker has had under Carlo Ancelotti at Goodison Park, scoring no fewer than nine goals in just six matches in all competitions for the Toffees, according to Transfermarkt.
Does Calvert-Lewin deserve the England call-up?

It was class and his family must be proud of the person not just the player! 👍💙⚽️

And seem to have a great sense of humour too. Still got a core of English lads; like every successful Everton team ever (given they existed in different eras) and I think it’s important for knowing what our club is all about and has been all about for 130+ years.
