Lewis Dunk has revealed the moment he knew he had been picked by England.

Albion boss Chris Hughton tried to deliver the good news early on Sunday – and his centre-back missed the call.

Dunk was called into the squad to face Croatia and Spain when James Tarkowski pulled out through injury.

He revealed: “It was Sunday morning. I woke up to a missed call from the manager.

“I was thinking, ‘What’s he ringing for?' On the voicemail it said, ‘Call me back’.

“I rang him back and he told me the good news.

“It’s the best news I’ve had in my career, to be called up to a place like this.

“To finally get recognition and be called into the national team is the best thing that has happened to me.”
