Five England U20 players to shine


England's under-20 squad: Meet players who won the World Cup final

England have won their first major trophy since 1966, after Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Venezuela.

It was England's glory after winning the U20 World Cup final. ESPN FC profiles England's next generation after Sunday's 1-0 in over Venezuela.

Freddie Woodman, 20

The goalkeeper is the godson of Gareth Southgate, having come through the ranks at Crystal Palace, just like the England manager. He joined Newcastle in 2013, where he is yet to make a senior appearance, and impressed on loan at Scottish club Kilmarnock last season. Saved a penalty in the final as England lifted the trophy.

Jonjoe Kenny, 20

One of the stars of the tournament, Everton's rampaging right-back has made an appearance from the bench in each of the last two Premier League seasons. Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has promised him more chances next year.

Kikayo Tomori, 19

The Canadian-born teenager was part of Chelsea's triumphant FA Youth Cup squad in 2016 before spending last season on loan at Brighton, where he barely played. Another loan beckons.

Jake Clarke-Salter, 19

The captain of Chelsea's all-conquering 2016 Youth Cup team spent last season on loan at League One Bristol Rovers. He has been a rock at centre-half during the tournament.

Kyle Walker-Peters, 20

Like his (almost) namesake at Tottenham, Walker-Peters is a right-back, but he has won plenty of plaudits for his tireless performances on the left during this tournament. He has yet to make a senior appearance at any level.

Lewis Cook, 20

The England captain has shone in South Korea, demonstrating why Bournemouth paid Leeds £6 million for him. His classy performances in midfield suggest he is ready to be a Premier League regular next term after making six appearances last season.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, 19

The versatile Arsenal youngster can play at right-back or on the wing but has spent most of his time in central midfield for England. He appeared in the domestic cups for Arsenal last season and was a regular on loan at Ipswich in 2015-16.

Kieran Dowell, 19

One of five Evertonians on the squad, Dowell started the final match of the 2015-16 Premier League season but did not play last term. He is versatile but has played on the right of an attacking midfield three in South Korea.

Joshua Onomah, 19

The midfielder has been training with Tottenham's senior squad for more than two years but did not make a Premier League start last season. He can play anywhere in midfield.

Ovie Ejaria, 19

Highly rated by Jurgen Klopp, the midfielder signed from Arsenal has already made several appearances in the cups and looks set to play a bigger part at Anfield next season.

Ademola Lookman, 19

Everton paid Charlton £7.5m for the winger, who scored with almost his first touch in the Premier League against Manchester City. He has bamboozled defences with his close control and trickery at the tournament. A star of the future.

Ademola Lookman has been one of the stars of the Under-20 World Cup.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, 19

The forward joined Everton from Sheffield United last summer and made 11 appearances in the league last season. He started the semifinal up front and kept his place to net the only goal of the game against Venezuela.

Dominic Solanke, 19

The forward, part of Chelsea's dominant youth set-up, will join Liverpool for preseason and has been one of the stars of the tournament with four goals in six appearances. He scored twice against the Italians from No. 10, but he is more likely to challenge striker Roberto Firmino than Philippe Coutinho for a spot at Anfield. Won the Golden Ball for Player of the Tournament in South Korea.

Adam Armstrong, 20

The most experienced in the Premier League in the squad after making 15 appearances for Newcastle as a teenager. The centre-forward was a regular on loan at Barnsley last season.

Sheyi Ojo, 19

Changed the semifinal from the bench with a dazzling display of direct running. He made two appearances for Liverpool last season and could be a useful impact sub for them next term.

Callum Connolly, 19

Another Evertonian who made an appearance in 2015-16 before spending last term on loan at Wigan. The defender has not been a starter in South Korea.

Ezri Konsa, 19

The Charlton defender, who came through the ranks at the Valley, can play a number of positions and is largely in the squad as a utility man. He started 30 games last season, more than anyone else in the group, and has been linked with a Premier League move since making his debut at age 18.

Dael Fry, 19

The centre-back has first-team experience at Middlesbrough in the Championship and on loan at Rotherham last season, and could be an important player for Boro next season if Ben Gibson leaves.

Harry Chapman, 19

Another Boro player, midfielder Chapman spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and has been a back-up so far in South Korea.

Dean Henderson, 19

Ended last season as Manchester United's third-choice goalkeeper and has had loans at Stockport County and Grimsby Town.

Luke Southwood, 19

One of just three players in the squad without a senior appearance in English football, the Reading goalkeeper has been a backup in this tournament.
