Ross Barkley needs to rediscover his goal touch if he is going to reclaim his place in the England squad says team-mate Romelu Lukaku.
The Everton midfielder scored his first goal from open play in 11 months against West Ham at the weekend, following free-kicks against Spurs and Yeovil earlier this season.
Romelu Lukaku said: “At the minute, the players who play in his position – like Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney – they have got goals in them.
“I think Ross has to get more goals and more assists than he has been doing. If he does that, then he is going to play.
“If Ross fulfils his potential, you are talking about the best player in English football. He has got everything.
“He has got power, he has got technique; he can shoot with both feet. He is fast, he can pick a pass. The manager has been working with him so he makes the right decisions on the pitch.”
Last season Barkley scored 14 goals, including his first England goals against San Marino and Lithuania, outscoring Alli who only managed 11.
