Lewis Dunk will have to wait for the chance to become Albion's first senior England international for 36 years.

Instead he had a close-up view tonight as Gareth Southgate's youthful Lions reigned in Spain.

The Seagulls' central defender was an unused substitute for England's remarkable 3-2 win in Seville.

He was named among nine replacements for the Nations League triumph in the rain at the Benito Vilamarin Stadium, home of Real Betis.

Liverpool's former Albion transfer target Joe Gomez partnered Harry Maguire in the centre of defence, with John Stones suspended after he was booked in the 0-0 draw in Croatia on Friday evening.

Southgate switched to a back three, Kyle Walker replacing Ross Barkley, when England were 3-1 up in the second half.

Dunk was a late call-up for the Croatia and Spain games after Burnley's James Tarkowski pulled out of the squad due to groin trouble.

The 26-year-old Brightonian now faces a wait to discover if he is retained in the squad for two matches at Wembley next month and the opportunity to become England's first international while an Albion player since Steve Foster won the last of his three caps against Kuwait in the 1982 World Cup in Spain.

Southgate could experiment in the USA's friendly visit on November 15 before the return clash with Croatia three days later.

Dunk and Albion have Premier League fixtures prior to that away to Newcastle, Everton and Cardiff and at home to Wolves.

The Seagulls are already assured of England representation in the November internationals.

First team coach Paul Nevin will join Southgate's backroom staff as part of an FA initiative to give more opportunities to BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) coaches.

England stunned Spain with three goals in the opening 38 minutes by Raheem Sterling (2) and Marcus Rashford.

Substitute Paco Alcacer reduced Spain's arrears before the hour mark.

Sergio Ramos cut the deficit further with the last kick of the match.
