As for Gunn, he is currently on loan at Championship side Norwich from Manchester City, and has represented England at five different age-group levels.

Meanwhile, Phil Jones has been ruled out of the game against the mighty Brazil at Wembley after being substituted with a thigh injury against Germany on Friday night.
