Everton youngster Pennington delighted with England U19 call

Everton defender Matthew Pennington is delighted with his England U19 selection.

Pennington is one of four Everton players named in the group, with Tyias Browning, John Stones and John Lundstram - currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers - also getting the call.

"I got a text off my mum," Pennington told "I looked at my phone and I had a lot of text messages and a few missed calls, so I was wondering what was going on.

"It's a dream to play for your country and I'm just glad I have got the chance. I've never played an international before, so it's a bit of a shock [to get called up]."
