Callum delighted with U18 cap

17 October 2013

Young keeper made debut against Hungary

Callum Burton has thrown himself back into training with Shrewsbury Town after the joy of winning his first England under-18 cap earlier this week.
Goalkeeper Burton was promoted from the standby list to play the closing stages of England's 4-0 win over Hungary at St George's Park on Monday.
It was a seventh England youth cap for the Shropshire lad from Newport following appearances at under-16 and under-17 level.   
"It was great to get the five minutes I had," said Burton. "It's obviously a step up from under-17s so I was happy to get some game time. 
"I went over on Monday morning, didn't expect to play, but got the last five minutes so I was happy with it."
Burton added: "It's back to work now and I've got to graft. It was great to be called up but I'll keep working and hopefully get another one."
