Brighton will have 10 players competing at Euro 2024 and the Copa American this summer

Brighton skipper Lewis Dunk was deservedly selected for England’s Euro 2024 squad in Germany this summer. Dunk, 32, has been excellent for the Seagulls throughout the last five seasons in the Premier League and has consistently been one of the best defenders in the country.

Dunk – who now has six caps for his country – has been overlooked by Gareth Southgate on previous occasions but this time he gets the nod and if he plays he will be the first Brighton player to represent England at a major tournament since Steve Foster featured in the 1982 Spain World Cup against Kuwait. Dunk is not the only Albion ace in international action this summer, as the Seagulls have 10 players featuring in the Euros or at the Copa America.
