All the latest Everton news, views and transfer rumors from the Liverpool Echo

“As a former Evertonian, I have followed the progress of Calvert-Lewin, and I think he is almost every number nine in the English squad,” Martinez said.

Calvert-Lewin made his England debut last week with a goal against Wales before taking the lead against Martinez’s Belgian at Wembley on Sunday.

Former Everton coach Roberto Martinez praised Dominic Calvert-Lewin after the striker’s breakthrough on the international stage.

“Of course he is still a young player compared to the experience of Harry Kane, but we respect every single player in this English squad.

Calvert-Lewin made a sensational start to the season for Everton with nine goals in six games.

The former German international spent a season at Goodison Park before hanging up his boots in September 2013.

Everton’s former midfielder, Thomas Hitzlsperger, described in detail the training session that convinced him to hang up his boots.

And the former Aston Villa and West Ham United player admits that he knew his days at Goodison Park were numbered.

“We did shuttle races and normally I was pretty good at it, the boys had the day off, but I trained that week because I wanted to be fitter than everyone else.

“I had a few workouts that I still remember,” he told the official Everton podcast.

“Then I realized that my head wasn’t in it anymore. That’s when I thought it was clear and obvious that I quit here just to make sure that I would finish the season well and give my best every day in practice.

“We had these runs and I was absolutely hopeless. David Moyes yelled at me and said, ‘Come on Thomas, I want more from you’.

Anthony Gordon’s path to Everton’s first team has been improved by Theo Walcott’s departure from the club, ECHO Everton reporter Adam Jones writes.

Walcott returned to Southampton on loan the day of the transfer deadline and brought 19-year-old Gordon closer to Carlo Ancelotti’s beginning of the XI.
