Walker-Peters reveals surprise call
Kyle Walker-Peters explained how Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl surprised him with the news of his England call-up while taking a shower.
The Saints fullback was drafted into the team following the retirement of Trent Alexander-Arnold, and he admitted the news was a shock, in more ways than one.
Speaking at The Three Lions press conference, Walker-Peters said: “I was actually in the shower and the manager came in.
“He had given us the week off due to the international break and asked me where I was going.
“So he said ‘no, you’re not. You go to England!
“I was surprised because the campus had already been released, but I was very excited to receive that news.”
