Richarlison likens Everton teammate Calvert-Lewin to Ronaldo

Richarlison has likened Everton teammate Calvert-Lewin to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Calvert-Lewin’s terrific start to the season has been rewarded with his first England call-up.

And Richarlison says he sees similarities in the 23-year-old with Juventus superstar Ronaldo.

“Dominic’s development has been really impressive,” Richarlison told FIFA’s official website.

“He’s transformed into a complete striker. I remember when I got here he was nothing like the player he is today.

“It’s down to the work he’s put in. He’s in the gym every day, he’s always working on his finishing. And playing under [Carlo] Ancelotti he’ll keep getting better and better.

“He’s had a superb start to the season and without doubt deserved his England call-up. He must be a nightmare to play against and he has an incredible leap on him like Cristiano Ronaldo.”
