Everton’s Tom Davies gatecrashes England Under-21 interview in hilarious fashion

Tom Davies had Aaron Ramsdale in hysterics as he gatecrashed the Sheffield United goalkeeper's England under-21 interview.

Both players are in Aidy Boothroyd's squad preparing for this month's European U21 Championship – along with rising stars like Manchester United's Mason Greenwood, Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi and Emile Smith Rowe of Arsenal.

The Young Lions are clearly in relaxed mood ahead of group games against Switzerland, Portugal and Croatia in Slovenia over the next eight days.

And as Ramsdale hailed Boothroyd for fostering a "family" atmosphere where players can joke around and even poke fun at the gaffer, Davies stuck his nose in to give a perfect example.

Blades goalie Ramsdale was laughing away at something happening off-camera as he started talking about U21 manager Boothroyd.

And then Davies' nostrils appeared at the top of the shot as the Everton midfielder video-bombed the interview.

"Here's my pal Tom," said Ramsdale as he tried to contain his giggles.

Ramsdale also revealed the U21 players quote the classic film 'Rocky' to banter their boss – shouting 'Adrian!' in a parody of Sylvester Stallone's character calling out to his girlfriend after his match-up with Apollo Creed.

"Aidy is a great man and a great manager as well," said Ramsdale in the interview with Sky Sports.

"He's great to have around, you can have a bit of a laugh with him and call him Adrian – do the Rocky voice, 'Adrian!' and stuff.

"We're allowed to give him a bit of stick and he gives us some back.

"He's just a breath of fresh air for everyone who comes to the U21s – the older lads or the younger lads coming into it.

"It's like an adopted family for anybody who comes, and it's testament to him for how hard he works."
