DCL excited about returning to the Lane

Dominic Calvert-Lewin is dreaming of heading up the England U21s attack at Bramall Lane next month.

The Young Lions host the Ukraine at Bramall Lane in their next Euro qualifying game on Tuesday 27th March, kick-off 6pm.

And the game could be the first time the Blades Academy graduate has played at the Lane since leaving to sign at Everton in August 2016, after just 11 appearances for the Blades.

"If I'm picked to play, it would definitely be a special moment for me," he revealed.

"It puts a smile on my face just thinking about it. To run out for England in my hometown, at my boyhood club's stadium, in front of so many of my family and friends would be a dream come true."

The 20-year-old joined United's academy ranks at the age of seven before graduating as a scholar and making his first-team debut in 2014.

So should he make Aidy Boothroyd's squad for March's games, which also includes a match with Romania at Wolves, he'll be looking forward to a return and a strong local turnout.

"I grew up supporting Sheffield United and watched many games at Bramall Lane as a kid growing up," he added.

"I've played there a few times for Sheffield United and I know the Blades fans love Bramall Lane. It's just a great, great stadium to play in.

"The city of Sheffield is very much like Liverpool really - they love their football and there's a red and blue divide just like there is in Liverpool.

"But it will be great to see the fans of both Sheffield clubs turn out in force to support England and hopefully roar the team on."

Tickets for the fixture are still available, in person from United's ticket office, online at and via the telephone by calling 0114 253 7200.

Tickets are priced at £10 adults and £5 concessions (Over 60s, U21s and full-time students). Disabled supporters will pay full price with a free carer (not available online).

Family tickets, two adults and two children are priced at £20 (not available online), with group bookings of 15+ people priced at £5 adults and £2.50 concessions (not available online).
