Sharp Calvert-Levin England sends the message
Grimm Sharp believes that Dominic Calvert-Levin could give England a different option up front and fill Harry Kane’s boots if necessary.
The 23-year-old has scored nine goals so far this season, including two hat-tricks, his first call-up to Gareth Southgate’s side for the latest round of international fixers.
And Sharp, speaking to the Press Association, believes the former Sheffield United game has a lot more to offer.
“When you look at what kind of striker, why England has Harry and there isn’t much after that.
“Dominic gives you something else and the fact that he’s got a great spring in the air, he gets incredible heights, they can use them to their advantage.
“Harry Kane is in possession of the jersey right now but Dominic will push him all the way.
“He has to start somewhere and he knows for himself that Harry Kane has that shirt – and quite accurately – but Gareth Southgate can change his tactics and move forward, you never know.
“But Dominic will go there in the next two weeks to find out if Harry Kane’s shirt has been injured.
“But it would be good for Harry and Dominic to be able to back it up.
“But to do that he has to reproduce the form he showed at Everton, where we are happy that he was able to be a good player who never scored a goal and is now a good player who can score goals now.”
