Norwich City goalkeeper Angus Gunn has been called up by England for their clash with Brazil on Tuesday night.

The Norwich-born goalkeeper could be set for his senior England debut and has become the first Norwich player since John Ruddy in 2012 to be called up by England.

Gunn played for the under-21 side on Friday and kept a clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Ukraine in a European Championship qualifying game for the young lions.

The goalkeeper is on a season-long loan from Premier League side Manchester City, but was born in Norwich and has supported the club his whole life.

He is also eligible to play for Scotland, as his father Bryan Gunn did, and could still compete for them until he makes his competitive bow for England.

Gunn has been in superb form for Norwich this season and has kept seven clean sheets in the Championship, including a run of five clean sheets in-a-row.
