How have the U20 World Cup winners in England progressed and will they be the stars of 2022?

Two years ago, the Young Lions of England won the Under 20 World Cup with a 1-0 win over Venezuela in South Korea.

The Gareth Southgate side tried to match that performance in Russia last summer and not.

The 2017 success offered the hope for a clear new era for the Three Lions, but how have those winners progressed since then?

Sportsmail takes a look at all 21 members of the Paul Simpson team to see if they will become stars for England at the Qatar World Cup in 2022.

Freddie Woodman

Where is he now?

Since winning the Golden Glove at the 2017 tournament, the goalkeeper made his debut in the first team for Newcastle and enjoyed a loan spell at the Scottish premiership in Aberdeen.

Woodman debuted last year against Luton Town in the third round of the FA Cup, but he has since made only three other appearances for the Eksters.

Future potential

Woodman saved a penalty in the U20 World Cup Final against Venezuela and was named Euro 2019 in the English U21 squadron last month.

Woodman also has the right mentors to guide him through his career, because his father is former Northampton Town, Andy Woodman and his godfather, none other than British boss Gareth Southgate.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

The 22-year-old needs a regular first-team football this season to show what he can do, but after playing for England since U16 level and gaining experience with four loan periods, he could be a future English keeper, but 2022 may be too early.

Dean Henderson

Where is he now?

The Manchester United goalkeeper has had two successful loans in the summer of 2017 in Shrewsbury Town and Sheffield United.

Henderson was particularly impressed when the Blades ended the promotion to the Premier League last season.

He was reportedly interested in Bayern Munich, Juventus, Arsenal and Tottenham earlier this year.

Future potential

In the course of the 2018-19 campaign, he managed to exclude his opponents 21 times, which earned him a clean sheet ratio of 45.7 percent.

The current United States number 1, David de Gea, managed only seven clear rounds and scored 13 goals other than Henderson.

The Premier League club is thinking very much of the 22-year-old and is expected to get a new contract with Old Trafford before returning to Bramall Lane next season.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Henderson is selected for the English U21 euro later this month and if he continues to produce as he did and becomes United's first choice, there is every chance that he will be on the plane to Qatar.

Luke Southwood

Where is he now?

The 21-year-old keeper is currently practicing his profession with Reading U23 & # 39; s and on loan to the National League side Eastleigh during the second half of the previous season.

Future potential

Sportsmail reported in March that Hull set up a summer break to Southwood.

He was the first visiting goalkeeper to keep a clean slate in the urban last Salford campaign, but is behind the other two keepers of the U20 squadron.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Southwood is far below the pecking order of the goalkeeper and it is therefore very unlikely that he will invade the English team within three years.

Jonjoe Kenny

Where is he now?

The Everton defender came this week with a Bundesliga outfit Schalke.

After starting at the start of the Toffees Academy at the age of nine, Kenny played 40 times for the first team, including 13 games from the previous campaign.

Future potential

The 22-year-old played every minute when England U20 & # 39; s lifted the World Cup in South Korea and he has every chance to become a major player for Everton and England.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

If he is the first choice at Goodison Park, Kenny would probably have a chance to connect with England for the World Cup in 2022. However, he has strong backs forward in Kyle Walker and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Callum Connolly

Where is he now?

Since success with U21 from England in 2017, the Everton defender has enjoyed loan games at Ipswich, Wigan and Bolton.

The 21-year-old made 33 games in the championship last season, in which he scored three goals and delivered two assists.

Future potential

Connolly is a flexible player because he can play completely on the back and in the middle, but also offers an option as a defensive midfielder.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

It is unlikely that you will be challenged in 2022 for a place on the Southgate squad.

Fikayo Tomori

Where is he now?

The Chelsea defender has had two spells since the summer of 2017.

His temporary period at Derby under manager Frank Lampard's previous campaign was a crucial season in his development.

He made 55 appearances when the Rams just missed the Premier League promotion after losing to Aston Villa in the final of the championship play-off.

Future potential

Rangers coach Michael Beale, who helped develop Tomori, told Sportsmail last month: & # 39; He has always been a really athletic boy that you thought he would not fail, but certainly had to work technically to get himself to the level that he is today.

& # 39; It's hard to be a young central defender, but his reading of the game and athletism to get himself out of trouble is fantastic. & # 39;

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Tomori was called to the U21 squadron for the euro this summer and if the 21-year-old continues to develop and manages to break into Chelsea for the first time, he may be on Southgate's radar.

Jake Clarke-Salter

Where is he now?

Another Chelsea player who has been sent on loan for the past two years.

Clarke-Salter joined Leonid Slutsky, who last year worked for Vitesse for a season at Vitesse, with some of the graduates of the Blues Academy when he was in charge of Hull.

Future potential

Clarke-Salter is a fast middle back who doesn't panic and has long been earmarked as one of the young players at Stamford Bridge able to put it in the Premier League.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Just like Tomori, the 21-year-old has been called up to the U21 English team for the euro this summer and if he continues with the move to Chelsea's first team, he may be in Southgate's mind.

Ezri Konsa

Where is he now?

Konsa made the switch from Charlton to Brentford a year after success with the Young Lions.

The defender came through the Charlton ranks alongside the Joe Gomez of Liverpool and the Ademola Lookman of Everton.

He played 47 games when Brentford achieved eleventh place in the championship last season.

Future potential

Both Liverpool and Everton were enthusiastic about the highly regarded middle half before moving to Brentford.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

The 21-year-old has been named in the English U21 squadron for the tournament this summer, but other players will be ahead of him when it comes to the 2022 World Cup.

Kyle Walker Peters

Where is he now?

The Tottenham right back got its full Premier League debut against Newcastle, just a few months after he had canceled the World Cup with the Young Lions.

The 22-year-old has done a total of 19 appearances for Spurs, including two Champions League outings.

Future potential

Walker-Peters made his first start in the Champions League against Barcelona at the Nou Camp in December.

He made a mistake that led Ousmane Dembele to open the score but admitted that he had learned & # 39; a lot about myself & # 39 ;.

The experience of playing for a top club in the Premier League and Champions League will come in handy.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Although he has played in Europe again, it will be difficult for him to go further than Alexander-Arnold and Walker.

Dael Fry

Where is he now?

Fry played in 39 games for the last campaign in Middlesbrough, providing four assists.

The middle ridge has attracted interest from Premier League Burnley this summer.

Future potential

Ben Gibson & # 39; s move to Turf Moor in 2018 gave Fry the chance to impress.

Fry was a key figure in Boro's quest for the play-offs last season, until he sustained an injury in April and sentenced him from the rest of the campaign.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

He will have to continue to grow and develop and the World Cup in 2022 will probably be too early.

Joshua Onomah

Where is he now?

Onomah was loaned by Tottenham after the 2017 triumph – first to Aston Villa and then to Sheffield Wednesday.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder was only 15 times in the championship with the owls last season.

Future potential

He is quick and awkward and impressed when he got his first Spurs start four years ago, but his career seems to be stuck and he has to return to regular football.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

With the will of the youngsters Callum Hudson-Odoi and Jadon Sancho, Onomah is far behind.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Where is he now?

As a midfielder for the Young Lions at the World Cup, the 21-year old played for Arsenal as right back towards the end of last season.

He made 31 appearances for the final Unai Emery campaign during the Europa League final.

Future potential

Maitland-Niles is pacey and offers a good option on the right flank in the event of an attack. It is versatile because it can play in midfield or on the grand piano.

He has the potential to become an important player for the Gunners in the coming years.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

He has a difficult task in his hands with Alexander-Arnold and Walker already in front of him in the right back position. Aaron Wan-Bissaka of Crystal Palace is also a promising full support.

Kieran Dowell

Where is he now?

Offensive midfielder Dowell has been loaned to Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United since two years ago with England.

The 21-year-old made 17 appearances for the magazines during half a season at the club.

Future potential

Dowell is talented but has found it difficult to break into the first team of the Toffees. He played for the club only five times in five years.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

It is unlikely that he will be in Southgate's plans in three years due to the players ahead and his lack of experience.

Sheyi Ojo

Where is he now?

The Liverpool winger has enjoyed loan games with Fulham and Reims since winning the World Cup in 2017.

Ojo scored one goal and provided one assist in 18 appearances for the last League 1 outfit campaign.

Sportsmail reported earlier this week that this summer Ojo is a target for the Rangers of Steven Gerrard.

Future potential

Ojo is a fast wideman but has failed to beat Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and has only 13 gigs for the club.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

The position is very competitive and at the moment Ojo is not in the picture.

Ovie Ejaria

Where is he now?

Another Liverpool player who has been on loan since the summer of 2017.

Ejaria has had periods in Sunderland, Rangers and most recently in Reading.

The 21-year-old seemed to be making progress under Gerrard on Ibrox before returning to the Reds in December when he made 28 appearances.

Future potential

Central midfield is a very competitive position with Anfield and therefore Ejaria may have to go somewhere else to develop further.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

It is unlikely that the plan is to be on the plane to Qatar in 2022.

Ovie Ejari seemed to make progress at Ibrox before returning to Reds in December

Lewis Cook

Where is he now?

Since beating the Young Lions in glory two years ago, Cook has been one player that has continued to improve.

Cook earned a senior cap for the 2018 World Cup and Southgate identified him as a future member of his side. He was also named on England's standby list for the tournament last summer.

In December, the Bournemouth midfielder was excluded for the remainder of the season after tearing his front cruciate ligament against Huddersfield.

Future potential

Cook had an impressive season until the injury previous campaign, playing in 13 of 15 of the Cherries & Premier League games.

He could become a key figure for the Cherries as soon as he returns from an injury.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Cook has a very good chance of being included in the England squad for the Qatar World Cup, if he continues at the speed with which he has been.

Adam Armstrong

Where is he now?

The attacker made the switch to Blackburn from Newcastle after a successful lending period in 2018.

Last season, he scored nine goals and delivered five assists at Ewood Park.

Future potential

After passing through the youth ranks in Newcastle, the 22-year-old played only 21 times for the Magpies.

He could not impress those in charge at St James & # 39; Park and was loaned four times.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Armstrong was an unused substitute in the U20 final and it is extremely unlikely that he will enter into the plans of the Three Lions.

Dominic Solanke

Where is he now?

Since picking up the golden ball in South Korea, Solanke has made his debut for Liverpool followed by a relocation of the Reds to Bournemouth.

He only made 10 appearances for Cherries' latest campaign with Callum Wilson and Joshua King for the 21-year-old pecking order.

Future potential

The striker is fast, can keep the ball up and test defenders in the air. He showed signs of promise with the Reds, but had to play more often.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Solanke has been included in the U21 squadron of Aidy Boothroyd for the euro and with potential room in the Southgate squad for a striker he has three years to defend his case.

Ademola Lookman

Where is he now?

Everton's winger enjoyed a loan in Germany on the Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in 2018.

He scored on his debut for the club after coming off the bench against Borussia Monchengladbach.

In just half a season, Lookman made an impression when he just netted five times and delivered four assists in 11 games.

He scored one goal and contributed two assists in 24 appearances for the Toffees last season.

Future potential

Lookman is fast and direct, but he has not been as effective since he returned to Goodison Park.

Southampton is reportedly focused on a £ 20 million summer promotion for Lookman.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Lookman has the potential to be a huge threat, but he still has to achieve this and is likely to be overlooked in 2022.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Where is he now?

Since the winner scores against Venezuela in the U20 World Cup Final, Calvert-Lewin has evolved into Everton & # 39; s head striker.

Marco Silva, the boss of Toffees, gave the 22-year-old the chance to become the club's number 1 last season.

Future potential

Calvert-Lewin combined the best goalscoring return of his career with eight last campaign and he also contributed three assists in 38 games.

He has the basis to be a striker who scores almost 20 goals every season.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Like Solanke, he is included in the U21 squadron for the euro and with potential room in the Southgate squad for a striker, he has three years to hand out a claim.

Harry Chapman

Where is he now?

Chapman helped Blackburn get promotion from League One in the 2017-18 season and reunited with the club in a permanent deal in January 2019 from Middlesbrough.

However, he only made two replacement appearances in the Championship last season.

Future potential

The 21-year-old has fought for game time and did not play for England in the tournament two years ago.

He will be looking for more opportunities at Ewood Park next season.

Qatar-bound in 2022?

Chapman has earned only 10 caps for the English youth teams. It is very unlikely that it will be close to England in three years.
