Liverpool full back Trent Alexander-Arnold has been included in England's 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation - but apparently he didn't find out directly from Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.
The Liverpool right-back was with the rest of his teammates flying off to Marbella - to prepare for their Champions League final clash against Real Madrid - when news broke that he would be heading to Russian Federation with England this summer.
With fellow Liverpool youngster Joe Gomez picking up an injury Alexander-Arnold has deservedly snuck into the squad but he didn't find out from Gareth Southgate.
When we pick young players, it's not just because they are young, it's because their performances deserve it.
But it seems Alexander-Arnold didn't receive the usual phonecall from Southgate to inform him that he had made the squad.
"The first piece of the jigsaw is complete in getting on the plane and the next thing is to get the starting shirt", the 24-year-old told evertonfc.com. "It's probably capped off a really good season for me".
"He asked me if I knew anything about the squad or anything yet".
"If I play I will be the youngest goalkeeper for England at a World Cup, which would be an achievement".
"I've never been in a situation like that in my life playing for England", he told Sky Sports News.
"On England's behalf, it was nice of them to let the manager [Klopp] tell me", he said. I thought maybe he knew already and someone else had called him.
"I had the honour of telling him and it was nice to see the reaction in his eyes". What a season! Can you be too young? No.
It caps an excellent finish to the season for the teenage defender and Klopp says the 19-year-old's call-up was well deserved. You can be not good enough - but he is good enough.
England's record cap holder, Peter Shilton, expects the tournament to test the teenager's resilience but believes the experience can help steel him for a role with England in the coming years.
Speaking about his inclusion to Liverpool's official website, he said: 'I'm honoured, excited and feeling really proud. I have to say a special thanks to everyone, especially my family for helping me get so far.
Reflecting on the decisions that form his latest squad, manager Southgate said: "The selection process has been over months really, it's not just been the last few weeks". It's a thanks to all of them.
