Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White on Tuesday said it was “surreal” to have earned a late call-up to England’s 26-man squad for the European Championship.

The 23-year-old was named by manager Gareth Southgate as a replacement for injured Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who withdrew from the squad last week after a thigh injury during England’s 1-0 win over Austria.

“I was speechless and I felt amazing,” White told a news conference. “It’s mind-blowing. I didn’t really expect any of this to happen. I thought I’d be somewhere hot like Portugal (for the summer).

“Even being in the 33-man squad was enough for me. To make it to the final squad was unbelievable. I don’t think I’ve let it settle in just yet.

“I’ve played in all the leagues and before each one I wondered whether I could step up to that league, but I’ve managed to do it. It’s another one of them.”
