Everton U21 coach Alan Stubbs is delighted four youngsters are part of England's U20 World Cup squad.

Academy graduates Ross Barkley, John Lundstram and Chris Long, plus January recruit John Stones are all part of Peter Taylor’s squad for this summer’s tournament in Turkey.

“It’s a major feather in the cap for Everton that we have got that many players in the England squad,” Stubbs told evertonfc.com.

“I’d like to have more players in the England Under-19s and Under-21s groups, but that is just me setting high standards.

“It’s really encouraging from a coach’s point of view and there is nothing better than when you are working with good quality players who are developing.”
