England boss Gareth Southgate has revealed that Brighton defender Ben White knew he was coming in for the experience and the friendlies rather than the Euros.

The 23-year-old defender was called up as part of Southgate's 33-man provisional squad last week.

But he was one of the seven players to miss out on the chance to go to the Euros with England.

However, Southgate revealed that the uncapped trio of White, Everton's Ben Godfrey and Sheffield United's Aaron Ramsdale knew they were coming in for the experience.

He said: “You never want to give bad news.

“It is lovely to give people debuts and bring people into the squad for the first time but it is much harder to deliver bad news.

“This time, there were three boys who knew they were coming in for the experience of training with us and for these two matches, and who knows what might happen.

"But they have trained really well.”
