Sharp sends message to Calvert-Lewin in England

Graeme Sharp believes Dominic Calvert-Lewin can offer England a different option up front and that he can fill Harry Kane’s boots if necessary.

The 23-year-old’s nine goals so far this season, including two hat tricks, have earned him a first call to Gareth Southgate’s side for the final series of internationals.

And Sharp, speaking to the Press Association, believes there is a lot more to the former Sheffield United man’s game.

He said:

“When you look at the kind of striker he is, England have Harry Kane and there aren’t many after that.

“Dominic gives you something else and the fact that he has a fantastic spring in the air, he reaches an incredible height, they can use it to their advantage.

“Harry Kane has the jersey now and with good reason, but Dominic will push it to the end.

“He’s got to get a start somewhere and he knows Harry Kane is in possession of this jersey – and rightly so – but Gareth Southgate could change tactics and go two up front, you never know.

“But Dominic will go there knowing what an opportunity it is for him during these two weeks to claim Harry Kane’s jersey if he gets injured.”

“But it would be nice to have a replacement for Harry and Dominic can certainly do it.”

“But in order to do that he has to replicate the form he showed at Everton, where we’re delighted he made this transition from a player who was a good player who never reached goals and who becomes now a good player who is scoring goals. “
