Video: Ademola Lookman Nutmegs England U21 Boss Aidy Boothroyd in Training

Ademola Lookman probably won’t be starting for England‘s Under 21s against Ukraine on Friday after this nutmeg on his manager Aidy Boothroyd.

The Everton youngster is in the U21 squad for their European Championship qualifier in Kyiv and no doubt expects to play a part in the game.

But we wouldn’t be surprised if he’s left out of the squad entirely after nutmegging Boothroyd during a possession square in training at St George’s Park.

England’s digital team was on hand with cameras to capture all the best bits from a training session earlier this week.

And they included the nutmeg in a video published earlier today:

Nutmegging the manager is a seriously bold way of going about getting a game, isn’t it?

On a serious note, Lookman is a regular in the Under 21 squad and should play some part in Friday’s game.

He’ll be looking for some action after having to settle for coming off the bench for the majority of this season so far for Everton.
