Everton Academy coach David Unsworth says that watching an Everton player scoring in a World Cup final at any level is a dream come true.
The Blues sent four members of the academy set-up away with England’s Under 20’s this summer and striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the goal which won the World Cup for the junior lions.
Unsworth said, “For an Everton player to score a goal in a World Cup final – at any level – is what dreams are made of.
“It’s a fantastic way to end what has been a marvellous season for Dominic. He deserves everything and all the accolades that have come his way. He is a great guy, very humble and an Everton player with hopefully a lot more to come.”
Clavert-Lewin himself was also delighted with his goal, and was seen with the other Evertonians in the squad celebrating at full time with an Everton flag.
“Words can’t describe how I’m feeling right now and how we’re all feeling,”he said. “We’re just trying to take it all in and lap up the celebrations.
“It means everything. You grow up dreaming of playing for your country and we’ve just won a world cup. I can’t put it into words how much it means.”
