Dan Burn among unluckiest players to miss England call-up – poll Brighton News

A FORMER Albion star is among the unluckiest players to miss an England call-up, according to a recent poll.

Dan Burn has made 74 appearances for Brighton and Hove Albion after signing for the side in 2018.

In January, the 29-year-old joined his boyhood club Newcastle United for a fee of £13million.

After an impressive start at St. James’ Park, Burn’s name has been mentioned by fans and pundits alike as a potential option for Gareth Southgate’s England side.

However, ahead of friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast, Crawley-born manager Southgate picked Alexander-Arnold, James, Shaw, Coady, Maguire, Guehi, Mings, Stones and White as defensive options.

According to a recent poll by OLGB, the former Albion defender is the fourth unluckiest player not to be called up to England.

Burn got 9.66% of the vote.

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho (19.31%) was the unluckiest not to be chosen, with AC Milan centre-back Fikayo Tomori (16.95%) coming second.

Brentford striker Ivan Toney (15.88%) was the other player to rank above Burn.

Here is the full list of the 11 players most deserving of recall, according to the OLGB poll:

Jadon Sancho (Manchester United) 19.31%

Fikayo Tomori (AC Milan) 16.95%

Ivan Toney (Brentford) 15.88%

Dan Burn (Newcastle United) 9.66%

Earlier this month, after photos of a Burn were released, many fans noticed the former Seagulls star was missing a finger.

Reportedly, Burn lost his ring finger on his right hand following an accident he was involved in as a teenager.

At age 13, Burn allegedly wore a ring while climbing a fence when she snagged on a spike, according to The Free Library.

The incident tore his finger off.
