Ross Barkley: Keen to make an impression at the Under-20 World Cup

The midfielder has been named in a provisional 35-man England squad for the Under-20 World Cup and does not mind keeping busy while most of his team-mates will be on their summer break.

Having been named the club's Young Player of the Season for 2012/13, he is confident he can continue to progress and become a regular in the side.

Everton are looking for new boss after David Moyes was appointed by Manchester United, and Barkley is looking forward to competing for a place.

"Things like the award give me real hope of becoming a first-team regular and I'm thinking about next season already," he told evertontv.

"I've got the Under-20 World Cup coming up, so I haven't really got a summer but I'll be ready for the pre-season, for the new manager and hopefully I'll impress him."

Barkley added: "Playing against different countries from all over the world will be good for me. It should be a good experience."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
