On Sunday evening it was confirmed that Brighton and Hove Albion centre-half Lewis Dunk had been called into the England squad by manager Gareth Southgate for the upcoming pointless cash creating matches against Croatia and Spain in UEFA’s new Nations League nonsense.

My own opinion about pathetic international breaks taking the focus away from football that actually matters is, however, largely irrelevant and Dunky has more than demonstrated that he’s more than capable of representing his country and whilst this call-up comes as a response to Burnley’s James Tarkowski withdrawing from Southgate’s original selection, it’s no less a deserved recognition.

It should’ve happened previously in my humble.

In any event, his first call into the national side is the perfect way to cap the 26-year-old signing a new five-year deal at the Amex Stadium last Friday, especially in light of all the speculation that surrounded him in the summer transfer window based on his showings…showings that have only improved his stock this year.
