Lewis Dunk is up and running with England – with 90 minutes, a win and a clean sheet on his debut.

The Albion centre-back from Brighton helped his country beat USA 3-0 in a friendly which doubled up as Wayne Rooney’s international farewell.

Dunk became the fourth man to appear for England while an Albion player following Tommy Cook, Peter Ward and Steve Foster.

He is the third Sussex-born post-war England international, following Gareth Barry and Bobby Tambling.

Dunk was not the only man flying the flag for the Seagulls.

The England technical team included Albion coach Paul Nevin, who is working with Gareth Southgate around both this game and Sunday’s visit from Croatia.

So maybe it was apt that former Seagulls loanee Jesse Lingard set the place alight with a brilliant curler to open the scoring.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Callum Wilson were also on target and an improved performance from the USA either side of the break meant the Albion man had a fair amount of defending to do.
