England manager Gareth Southgate named his squad yesterday for the upcoming games against USA and Croatia, and Brighton and Hove Albion centre-half Lewis Dunk received his second successive call-up to the group.

The 26-year-old saw his form for us rewarded with a maiden call-up for the October international window games, but he didn’t feature – remaining an unused substitute against Croatia and Spain. The upcoming set with him now more adjusted to the group could see him debut at Wembley Stadium.
It’s another positive step for him though and another boost for Brighton overall, as is first team coach Paul Nevin’s inclusion as he’s been brought into the coaching staff for the coming matches so it should be a good experience for him as well, and something we benefit from further down the line also.
Again, the news has received a very positive reaction from fans on social media.
YESSSSSS!!!! He is one of our own, Lewis Dunk he is one of our OWN!!! #bhafc
