Swansea: Fans react to England under-21 call-ups for Sam Surridge and Ben Wilmot

Swansea duo Sam Surridge and Ben Wilmot have been called into the England under-21 squad by Aidy Boothroyd for their upcoming games against Slovenia and Austria.

TheFA.com reported that the Swansea pair, along with Charlton’s Conor Gallagher, had received call-ups following the injury-enforced withdrawals of Morgan Gibbs-White, Reiss Nelson and Mason Greenwood.

Striker Surridge, who is on loan from Bournemouth, has made 10 appearances and scored four goals so far this season, but three of those strikes came in the Carabao Cup, while his only three starts this season have all been in that competition and he was an unused substitute in the 1-2 defeat by Stoke on Saturday.

Centre-back Wilmot, who is at Swansea on loan from Watford, has only made three appearances so far this term and has played a solitary minute in the Championship. However, unlike Surridge, he has previously represented England at youth level.

Both Surridge and Wilmot took to Twitter to express their delight at being drafted into the England under-21 squad, and these Swansea fans on Twitter also felt thrilled for the pair:
