Ben White joined a special list for Brighton of players who have been capped for their country.

The 23-year-old became the 70th player to win a senior cap while playing for the Seagulls after coming off the bench in the England’s 1-0 win over Austria on Wednesday night.

That cap put him level with six others, who have just one solitary appearance for their country whilst playing for the Seagulls in skipper Lewis Dunk, Liam Bridcutt, Niki Maenpaa, Tomasz Kuszczak, Chris Wood, John Byrne, Gary Howlett, Peter Ward, Joe Kinnear, Jimmy Hopkins, and Tommy Cook.

White has also become the fifth Albion player to play for England after Cook, Peter Ward, Steve Foster, and most recently Dunk.

He was also the youngest of the five players to be handed their England debut at the age of 23, with Ward, Foster, and Cook all being 24 and Dunk being the oldest at 26.

England have won all seven of their matches when Albion players have featured, which is the best 100%- win record, when players from a club have represented them.

It has been a week of mixed emotions for the centre back.

On Tuesday he missed out on making the 26-man squad, with Gareth Southgate confirming White and the other five players who missed out will be on their standby list if they pick up any injuries in the friendlies against Austria and Romania.

However, White may have a chance of getting into England's Euro squad after Trent Alexander-Arnold withdrew from the squad last night through injury.

But Southgate has confirmed he will not name a replacement until after Sunday’s friendly against Romania.

White would be among the likely candidates to replace him given he can play at right back and right wing back as well as at centre back.

But Albion Seagulls skipper Gordon Greer, who won 11 caps for Scotland between 2013 and 2016, believes White has a bright future ahead of him.

He said: “I’m probably biased when I am looking at it but Brighton have got such a good back three in Webster, Dunk, and White.

“I think all three of them are very good players and Ben has benefitted massively from playing alongside the likes of Dunky and Webster.

“Within the shape that they play, Ben has done great and he is young.

“For me, he has got such a big future ahead of him and I can see why Gareth Southgate called him up to the provisional squad.

“He is probably looking at the future as well a bit thinking we have got Ben Godfrey at Everton and Ben White at Brighton.

“They are both very talented young players, who in my opinion look to be the future of the England backline.”

White will now be looking to try and get his first start for England in their friendly against Romania on Sunday evening at the Riverside Stadium (5pm).

He certainly impressed in his brief appearance against Austria and came to England’s rescue in stoppage time.

That is after he cleared Alessandro Schopf’s low shot off the line with Jordan Pickford having made a mess of punching a ball clear.

Albion’s list of players who have won caps for their country could increase with Robert Sanchez yet to win his first cap for Spain.

But with friendlies against Portugal this evening (6:30pm) and Lithuania on Tuesday (7:45pm) Sanchez could be handed his debut.

If he does he will be hoping to impress and stake his claim to start in goal at the Euros.
