Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin continued his fine scoring form for the season by bagging his maiden England goal against Wales.
The striker has enjoyed a brilliant start to the season with Everton, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side heading into the international break top of the Premier League table.
Calvert-Lewin has already registered 10 strikes for the season in just 7 appearances for club and country, including two hattricks against West Brom and West Ham respectively.
In fact, the 23-year-old is yet to lose a game in which he has scored, and that record continued on Thursday night with his first England goal.
The Three Lions hosted Wales in a friendly at Wembley Stadium, running out comfortable 3-0 winners, with goals from Calvert-Lewin, Conor Coady and Danny Ings.
It was the Evertonian who opened the scoring after 25 minutes, heading home a teasing Jack Grealish cross from close range which left Wales keeper Wayne Hennessy no chance.
The striker’s first-time header means that of the last 12 goals scored by Calvert-Lewin, 11 have been one-touch finishes.
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti had encouraged the former Carlisle man to look at the way legendary Italian marksman Filippo Inzaghi used one-touch finishes – and DCL seems to be taking note.
