Everton's Tom Davies trained with England's senior side on Wednesday.

Tom Davies has told Everton's official website that he is grateful to Ross Barkley for guiding him through his first England training session.

Davies was selected to train alongside England's senior players on Wednesday, after a series of injuries left Roy Hodgson short of numbers. 

And the 17-year-old admits it was an amazing experience, although he has thanked Barkley for helping him to settle within a star-studded group. 

“The squad were really good with me and Ross helped me a lot,” Davies said. “He walked out and went through the warm-up with me, so he just generally looked after me, which was really nice.

“I even managed to score twice. I had Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain attacking with me, which was unbelievable as they are both top players.”

There are high hopes for Davies' future at Goodison Park, and he signed his first professional contract with the Toffees in September - announced on the club's official website

It seems that England have also recognised his talent, and the young midfielder will be hoping to go from strength to strength after this experience. 

Davies is yet to make his senior debut for Everton, but he has is starting to make an impact at under-21 level for the Merseyside outfit.

Davies' next assignment comes at the under-17 World Cup, which takes place in Chile. He will play for his country alongside fellow Everton teammate James Yates.
