England’s U20s side took on Venezuela in the Under-20 World Cup final in South Korea today and despite beating all odds of reaching it, they went on to win it. A goal from Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the 35th minute left the Young Lions with a lead to protect, and so they did.

An excellent penalty save from Newcastle’s Freddie Woodman kept the score at 1-0, and the Three Lions maintained that scoreline as they went on to win the under-20s World Cup. 

So after an excellent, professional performance from England’s young side, we wondered how many minutes each player played for their retrospective clubs, especially in the Premier League. Out of the 21 players in England’s U-20 squad, 16 have played senior league football last season.

Ademola Lookman and Dominic Calvert-Lewin the most recognisable players given their appearances for Everton this season, however, Josh Onomah and Lewis Cook have also made appearances for their clubs this season.
