‘I back myself’ – Tom Cannon tells Frank Lampard he’s ‘ready’ as Everton debut admission made

It’s been some fortnight for Tom Cannon.

The teenager made his senior debut for Everton in the Carabao Cup defeat at Bournemouth – a major personal milestone and source of huge pride, a moment he savoured even though the defeat hurt that night. Five days later he was living through the same internal conflict as Frank Lampard handed him his Premier League debut in the same stadium, though once again it came on a difficult day for the team.

The landmarks in the young starlet’s career have kept coming even as the season technically broke for the World Cup. He was selected for the club trip to Australia, played against Scottish giants Celtic and then came on against Western Sydney Wanderers and did precisely what he does best – score goals.

In an Everton side that has struggled for them this season, Cannon thinks he can help. After the game, still delighted with his goal, he said he believes: “I’m ready for this level.”

Everton comfortably saw off Wanderers at the CommBank Stadium, the club’s ground on the banks of the Parramatta River in western Sydney. But as they began to cruise the side’s performance was reinvigorated midway through the second half with the introduction of Tom Cannon and Stanley Mills.

Mills had broken into the box from the left but could only look on as Daniel Margush did enough to keep his shot out. Yet Margush was not yet done and after he misjudged Mills’ effort the ball dropped kindly for Cannon, who pounced. Lampard later said of the 19-year-old: “He is a goalscorer, which is a nice breed that is fairly rare, and he naturally gets in areas and he is quick and he’s hungry.”

After the game, Cannon was still bubbling with excitement as he prepared to leave the ground, telling the ECHO: “It feels unreal. It hasn’t quite settled in yet. It’s a moment I’m very pleased with, just delighted.”

‘Some lip on him’ – Trent Alexander-Arnold sends blunt message to Conor Coady after England challenge

There was no love lost between Merseyside rivals Conor Coady and Trent Alexander-Arnold in England training on Thursday after the Everton man beat his defensive teammate in a jumping drill.

Domestic rivalries have been put on hold for the time being as the Three Lions embark on their 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar. Gareth Southgate’s side got off to a flying start with a 6-2 win against Iran on Monday, and spirits within the camp at Al Wakrah are high.

Proof of the good mood was clear when England’s YouTube channel shared today’s Inside Training video, with Coady…
