Peterborough keeper Lewis amazed by England call

Peterborough United goalkeeper Joe Lewis admits he's amazed by his England call-up.

He said: "I am over the moon and thrilled with the call-up - it came out of the blue and I am enjoying every minute of it.

"I trained with the squad on Saturday morning and it was superb to be involved with the best players in the country.

"There's a second training session at 5pm on Saturday and it is a fantastic experience for me.

"I managed to make a couple of good saves, which was a great feeling, especially from Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard.

"It is a great end to a fantastic season."

If Lewis features on Wednesday, he will become the first player outside of the top two divisions to play for England since Crystal Palace's Johnny Byrne in 1962.
