Once described by Everton legend Tim Cahill as the most talented footballer he had ever worked with, the future is bright for Ross Barkley. A 20-year old Barkley was part of the England squad that travelled to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and now the boy from Wavertree looks set to be a staple of the national team for years to come. Expectations for Barkley were high when, at the tender age 18, he impressed on his Everton debut, even earning the man of the match award. Barkley’s impressive performances were coupled with stunning goals, including a beautiful free kick against Swansea and a stunning curled effort against Manchester City. Now an essential cog in the Everton machine, Barkley’s driving runs and creative through balls are what make him a force to be reckoned with.
