Callum Burton has returned to training with Shrewsbury Town still buzzing about his latest taste of international experience with England.

The goalkeeper, who will not turn 18 until August, came off the bench to play the last 15 minutes of the 4-0 win enjoyed by England under-18s against Belgium at St George's Park on Tuesday afternoon.

It was his second appearance for the under-18s following previous experience for England at under-16 and 17 level.
"It was brilliant and great to get game time again," he said. "It was good to get on the pitch and get back playing internationally.

"It was good to be able to play against players like that from a good nation like Belgium as well.

"I came on for the last 15 minutes. I touched the ball three times so it was a pretty easy 15 minutes but it was good to get on.

"As the clock was going down, I was becoming a bit nervous because I wanted to get on but it was good to get on in the end and hopefully it will happen again."

Callum added he was grateful for the support he received from Town caretaker manager Mike Jackson and the club's goalkeeping coach Danny Coyne who both travelled to St George's Park to watch him.  

He added: "It was brilliant for them to come and watch - it meant a lot to me."
