Everton teen sensation named as one of world's best young footballers (not Calvert-Lewin)
By John Reid
Everton midfielder Tom Davies has been named in a prestigious magazine list of the 100 best teenagers in world football.
FourFourTwo has put Davies in the lofty position of 11th place in the list, saying he is an “energetic, box-to-box midfielder who possesses both physical and technical gifts.”
Davies made his Everton debut on the last day of the 2015-16 season, as then – and current – Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth handed him a start against Norwich City.
Davies turned in a man of the match performance in Everton’s 3-0 victory.
Davies signed a new five year contract with the Toffeemen, and after struggling to break into the side he got a run of games beginning with a superb performance in a 4-0 victory over Manchester City in January 2017, a game which saw Davies score his first ever goal.

Davies impressed so much that his contract was improved and he signed a new deal with Everton.
Despite Everton’s dreadful form this season, Davies has been a rare ray of light in what has so far been an awful few months for the Goodison Park club.
Davies has represented England at under 16, 17, 18, 19, and 21 levels, and it seems only a matter of time until he represents the senior side at international level.
