Brighton defender Ben White may have missed out on Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad for the Euros, but his England journey may not be over yet.

The 23-year-old could still win his first England cap, with Southgate admitting that the centre back was called into the squad to gain experience and be with them for their two friendlies against Austria tonight (8pm) and Romania on Sunday (5pm).

But the England manager has also revealed that White and the other players that  have missed out on the 26-man squad will be on the standby list.

He said: "Basically all the players that are here will be on that standby list.

"So Ben Godfrey, Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale, James Ward-Prowse, Jesse Lingard and Ollie Watkins, they will be the standby players.

"So if we have any injuries then one of them will come in.

"We can only change the squad on the basis of injuries and obviously those guys will be training with us and will be involved in the matches as well.

"I think that is important to get them into the games, not only because we feel if we have an issue they need to be ready.

"But they deserve it, their commitment to stay with the group, the respect for their team mates to want to be here, shows what playing for England means to this group of players.

"I think it is improtant the public know that because sometimes people dismiss the importance of England caps and what it means to players.

"This group are incredible in that regard and those three boys (Godfrey,White and Ramsdale) in particular that received that disappointment yesterday I think it speaks massively for their character and their personality. "
