Ross Barkley (born 5 December 1993) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Everton and the England national team. He has also played for Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United, both on loan from Everton.

Club career[edit]

Ross Barkley joined Everton as an 11-year old and played for the club's youth teams. He was named as a substitute in a first team league game in early 2010–11, and was expected to make his Premier League debut[3] before his leg was broken in three places after a collision with Liverpool's Andre Wisdom during an England under-19 match in October 2010.[4]

He recovered from his injury in time to join the first team for pre-season training before the beginning of 2011–12. During pre-season, Tim Cahill heralded Barkley as the most talented footballer he had worked with.[5] He made his debut in Everton's first game of the season, a 1–0 defeat to Queens Park Rangers, and was named man of the match by Radio City Sport.[6] His early performances were highly praised, with Martin Keown predicting that "[Barkley will] be one of the best players we'll ever see in this country."[7] He signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract in December 2011.[8]

On 14 September 2012, Barkley joined Sheffield Wednesday on a one-month loan deal[9] making his debut the same day in an away defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion.[10] He scored his first goal for the club, a penalty, against Bolton Wanderers the following week.[11] His loan was extended before he was recalled by Everton after playing thirteen games for Wednesday.[12][13] He again went out on loan, this time to Leeds United for an "initial one-month stint", in January 2013[14][15] and made his debut for Leeds in a derby match against Barnsley.[16]

Barkley rejoined the Everton first team for the 2013–14 season, and scored his first goal for the club on the opening day in a 2–2 draw against Norwich City, and was later named man of the match.[17][18] During the first half of the season, Barkley put in several man-of-the-match performances, notably against Arsenal and Swansea City – the latter whom he scored the winner against.[19] He received praise from many pundits including Alan Hansen who said Barkley has absolutely everything and Gary Lineker who claimed he is a star in the making and a prodigious talent.[20][21] Club manager Roberto Martínez described Barkley as a mix of Paul Gascoigne and Michael Ballack.[22]

International career[edit]

Barkley has represented England at under-16, under-17, under-19, under-20, under-21 and senior level.[23] He was first called up for the under-16 level in September 2008, aged 14.[24]

He was selected to play in the 2009 Montaigu Tournament and captained the team to success, beating Germany 2–1 on penalties in the final.[25] He also helped England win the 2010 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship with two goals en route to the final where England beat Spain 2–1.[26] Barkley was called up to the England U-21 squad in August 2011.[27]

On 28 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's 21-man squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[28] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[29]

He scored his first goal for England under-21's on 13 August 2013, in a 6–0 win against Scotland.[30]

Barkley was called up to the senior England squad in August 2013,[31] and earned his first senior cap the following month, coming on as a substitute for Jack Wilshere in a 4–0 win in a World Cup qualifier against Moldova at Wembley.[32]

Personal life[edit]

Barkley grew up in the Scouse area of Liverpool.[33]
