England call as young Gunn moves north

Goalkeeper Angus Gunn is set to further his international career after earning another England call-up.

The 15-year-old, who is now on Manchester City's books after leaving Norwich City, has been named in the England Under-17 squad for the Nordic Tournament, an annual summer friendly competition in Iceland.

The Norwich-born son of former City goalkeeper and manager Bryan Gunn is one of two 'keepers in Kenny Swain's squad of 18, along with Tottenham's Luke McGee.

The tournament in Iceland runs from July 30 to August 8. England face Faroe Islands, Norway and Iceland before a final match against either Sweden, Denmark, Finland or a second Iceland team.

Gunn junior kicked off his international career last season with a clean sheet for England Under-16s, playing 45 minutes in their friendly against Slovenia in Koper. He then played a full 90 minutes in the 3-0 Victory Shield win against Northern Ireland.
