Sunderland ace Carl Winchester has been called up to Northern Ireland’s squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
And, as to be expected, a number of Sunderland supporters have been sharing their positive thoughts to the news on social media.
The 28-year-old has been a regular at right-back under Lee Johnson, starting every League One encounter so far. He’s been ranked in the top five Sunderland performers, as per WhoScored, with an average match rating of 7.11/10.
Winchester has also scored three times in the third-tier this season, and a number of supporters were quick to heap praise on him following his call up.
Will Sunderland get promoted in 2021/22?
Yes, this is the year!
No, I have my doubts!
Sunderland fans react
The Black Cats posted on their official Twitter page regarding Winchester’s call up on Monday afternoon. This is what these Sunderland fans had to say in reply, with one labelling it as ‘fantastic’.
“I am genuinely so happy for him”
“Fully deserved, he’s been class so far this season”
“Fully deserved he’s been brilliant this season”
“Fully deserved excellent to see all those players on international duty, the club has a good feeling about it. This international break has come just at the right time for us.”
