England World Cup Winners, who are they, the U.20
DATE: 12.06.2016 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2016-17
England went on to
win the World Cup for U.20 teams, after a 1-0 win in the final v.
The English newspapers writes about this as the win over all wins
since the 1966 World Cup win, but hardly it can't be of that
calliber, but as history tells it's story, its the first time since
that day in 66, that England have won a major competition for teams
of this type of level.
Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin secured the win and becomes
the name of the history books as Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters for
always will be the goalscorers of the 1966 World Cup.
The run of results under the guidence of the former Man City winger
Paul Simpson are very impressive. In the group stages they won
against Argentina and South Korea, and picked up a draw v . Guinea.
In the quarter finals they won 2-0 against Costa Rica. A 1-0 win in
the semi's v. Mexico and finally that 1-0 over Venezuela crowned
England champions in a proper international tournament for the first
time since 1966.
This group of players have also won other trophies for England at
younger age and they could be the final end to "major importing" in
English Premier League football.
The captain, Lewis Cook, joined Bournemouth from Leeds last summer,
but has so far been in the shadows at Dean Court, mostly because he
picked up an injury early in the season, and didn't return before
the final stages this spring.
The goalkeeper is one to watch. Freddie Woodman is on the books at
Newcastle, but has in the last couple of seasons spent a number of
periods on loan, and this season been with Kilmarnock in the SPL.
On right back England fielded Jonjoe Kenny. Kenny is on the books at
Everton, and so far only two first team appearances to his name, but
loan spells at Wigan and Oxford has made him more mature in his play
at a very young age.
To left in defence Kyle Walker-Peters was the player and he is
currently playing for Tottenham. He has so far not any first team
league appearances to show, but looks like a solid young player of
Chelsea duo Fikayo Tomori and Jake Clarke-Salter was the chosen once
for the two jobs in the middle and they are solid both of them, and
maybe Conte should look no further for the long term replacments of
John Terry and maybe later Gary Cahill.
England fielded a team in a 4-2-3-1 formation, which is the
one to use and makes your midfield very much in command. Cook, the
captain, was in the right defensive midfield role, with Tottenham's
Josh Onoma to the left.
Everton duo Lookman and Dowell were also in the team playing wide to
the left and right. Chelsea's Solanke, who has spent the last
seasons on loan at Vitesse i Holland, played in offensive role just
behind goalscorer Calvert Lewin.
If you add to this that not just winning the World Cup wasn't enough,
England brought a number of fringe players to Toulon and won that
trophy as well. Maybe the most exciting young prospect in England at
the moment, Everton's Tom Davies was not involved, so that tells the
This shows that English clubs are working well in the academy
departments, and hopefully this will give young English talent a
chance to shine in the Premier League in the future.
