Norwich City goalkeeper Angus Gunn has been called up to the England senior squad for the first time.

The 21-year-old, who's on loan from Manchester City, will join up with Gareth Southgate's side ahead of their friendly against Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday.

Gunn replaces Stoke City stopper Jack Butland who broke his finger in training ahead of Friday's goalless draw with Germany.

The Canaries' number one kept a clean sheet for England under 21s earlier on Friday in their 2-0 victory over Ukraine in Euro 2019 qualifying.

He returned to Norwich in the summer on a season-long loan deal having left the club to sign for Premier League giants Manchester City in 2011.

A product of Norwich's academy, he is also the son of Canaries legend Bryan who made more than 400 appearances.

Gunn has enjoyed a productive first full season in professional football and set a new Norwich club record by going five consecutive games without conceding in September.
