White has completed a remarkable couple of weeks after being named in England’s Euro 2020 squad.The 23-year-old has been called up from the standby list to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold, who was forced to pull out after picking up a thigh strain.

It is a remarkable turnaround for White. This time last week, the versatile player was uncapped, and his inclusion in Southgate’s 33-man provisional squad had been seen as an opportunity to gain some experience around the England set-up.

And Albion fans are delighted for him. After the club tweeted the news fans replied with their messages.
