Albion’s Ben White is on the bench for England as they kick off their Euro 2020 campaign against Croatia.

White is squad number 22 and should he get on the pitch he would be the first Albion player ever to play for England in the European Championships.

However, former Albion midfielder Sergei Gotsmanov played for the then USSR in the final of the 1988 tournament two years before joining the Seagulls.

White, 23, has made two previous appearances for England in their past two friendlies – the first as a sub and the second time he was in the starting eleven.

England will be looking to avenge their World Cup semi-final defeat against Croatia three years ago.
