Four Albion faces have been given England call-ups this month.

Brighton & Hove Albion will have four players representing England at various age groups during the upcoming international break. 

Defender Tariq Lamptey has again been selected for the under-21 side who face two European Championship qualifiers.

Aidy Boothroyd’s side travel to Andorra on 7th October before hosting Turkey on 13th October at Molineux. 

Lamptey made his under-21 debut in last month’s qualifier against Austria, which England won 2-1.

Albion under-23s goalkeeper Carl Rushworth has been named in the under-20 squad for their game with Wales at St. George’s Park on 13th October. 

The young stopper has stepped up from under-19 level and will link-up with the under-20s for the first time. 

Jensen Weir and defender Haydon Roberts have been selected in the under-19 group for their upcoming double header against Scotland, also taking place at St. George’s Park. 

Weir makes the move up a year from the under-18 group for the first time to join Albion teammate Roberts in the squad.
