​Tottenham fullback Trippier 'lost for words' over England call up

Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier finds himself lost for words following his first call-up to the senior England squad.

The right-back is one of five Spurs players named in Gareth Southgate's team for World Cup qualifier away to Scotland and subsequent friendly in France in the second week of June.

"It's not really sunk in yet to be fair!" Trippier told the club's website.

"I'm honoured to be called up for England, obviously with my team-mates as well.

"It's been a good second half of the season, I've got more regular football under my belt and every time I play I always do my best, so I'm just really honoured and proud to be called up and recognised."
