Everton superkid Barkley wins Brooking praise after England U19 performance

Everton superkid Ross Barkley was outstanding in England U19's 2-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Everton superkid Ross Barkley was outstanding in England U19's 2-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Barkley assisted the first goal for Tottenham striker Harry Kane and also set up the move which led to the Three Lions’ second – headed home by Chelsea's Pat Bamford.

Barkley showed plenty of class on the ball throughout and was denied a deserved goal late on when twice thwarted by the Czech keeper.

Trevor Brooking was summarising for FATV and he was particularly impressed by Barkley's display.

He said: "Barkley had a good game and I think he will be an outstanding talent for England in the future.

"I also think Everton will be pleased as well. He is always there or thereabouts in their first team but the 90 minutes will have done him good."
