The 17-year-old was asked to step up from England's U17s for the morning and train with Roy Hodgson's squad to make up the numbers after Wayne Rooney, Danny Ings and Jonjoe Shelvey all sat out with injury complaints.
Davies recently put pen to paper on his first professional contract with Everton, signing a two-year deal.

Everton are enjoying somewhat of a bonus with youngsters these days with Ross finally maturing, Galloway and Browning doing well along with Funes Mori shaping up too. With others out injured, Coleman, Baines, Oviedo, and Cleverley, one hopes that, if ever the whole squad is fully fit again, Everton will have a force to be reckoned with come the second half of the season.
Obviously, it usually follows that when you get some guys back some others get injured but most teams have the same problems and if Everton can maintain a high league position with the youngsters doing well, then we can be optimistic.

Always used as central midfielder, so you don't play there for older age groups and internationals if you're not highly rated.

As regards Ledson, he was never seriously in contention for a first team place this season but he also has plenty of time to develop. It is a huge leap to first team from under-age football and as we all know only a very small number of the elite players who are internationals at under 17 make it at Premier League level.
Apart from the once-in-a-generation players such as Wayne Rooney, it is very difficult to predict who will make it at such a young age.

On the plus side, I would say that he appeared to be one of the fittest players in that he never stopped running and tackling all over the pitch, his work rate was really impressive. Hope he comes good both for his and The Blues' sake.

He is an experienced England youth International for his age and a product of the Everton academy. He may captain his country during the tournament so wish him luck he will need all our support for he has the potential to lead the seniors one day this is just the beginning!

Although help me here: England topped Group D and Tom Davies returned in the Quarterfinal; however, they lost to Russia... Have I got that right? So I don't quite understand the basis of your claim. In fact, another Blue Nathan Holland, missed a vital penalty in that game... so you could perhaps argue it another way...

Tom Davies was injured in the opening group match against Italy a game England won 1-0 he recovered for the Russia quarterfinal game after England qualified from the group stage I believe they had been unbeaten in the qualifying tournament up to that date I trust he will go to Chile and make his family proud .
One very important thing about Tom that was evident during his performance against Romania U17 at Burton Albion football club during the Euro Qualifying tournament, a game I might add that he captained England, he is a tremendous leader. After England had conceded a soft keeper mistake goal, Tom ran to the keeper, calmed him down with an encouraging word at the right time, and England went on to win the game.
He's a credit to his club, family and his country.
