Dominic Calvert-Lewin sends message to Ademola Lookman on Instagram after big disappointment

England named their Under-21 squad on Tuesday and it is a very strong squad, including James Maddison, Harvey Branes and Aaron Wan-Bisaska to name but a few. One player who missed out though was Everton starlet Ademola Lookman.

The 21-year-old has made 21 appearances this season for the Toffees, but most of these appearances have come from the bench.

He is exceptionally talented but still raw, and Everton have used him sparingly with Bernard Marco Silva’s preferred choice on the left wing for much of the campaign.

Would’ve loved to be part of the squad and join the boys at the U21 Euro’s this summer, but unfortunately it’s not the case. Wishing the boy’s all the best in Italy! Bring it home! ?????

Lookman is gutted, but he is still behind the Young Lions as they look to win some silverware.

His teammate Dominic Calvert Lewin responded to Lookman’s post and sympathised with his fellow Toffee.

Lookman signed from Charlton Athletic for £11m and has not kicked on as he was expected to, but there is still potential there waiting to be untapped.

He must use this disappointment as motivation to challenge for a first-team spot next year or go out on loan to get some regular football.

If Lookman fails to, we could see another exciting youngster drift away into obscurity.
