'I think he'll make his England debut' - Hughton on Dunk

Brighton boss Chris Hughton feels Lewis Dunk fully merits an England debut.

Uncapped defender Dunk has once again been called on by national team manager Gareth Southgate ahead of games against the United States and Croatia.

The 26-year-old was a late addition to Southgate's last squad in October but failed to make it off the bench for the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain.

"Lewis's inclusion is a result of the platform this club has given him - that's not all been under me and I know he's thankful to a lot before me," said Hughton, quoted on Albion's Twitter account.

"But he's earned it with England - he did himself credit last season and he's put in a lot of hard work."

Dunk's first international involvement came as a result of an injury suffered by Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski.

He watched on from the sidelines as his country drew 0-0 in a behind-closed-doors game in Croatia, before they pulled off a surprise 3-2 win against their other Nations League opponents Spain.
