Shaun Wright-Phillips received a very early Father's Day gift from his son D'Margio. The 15-year old Manchester City Academy product was called up to represent England's U16 National Team, according to The Sun.

D'Margio will be the third generation of his family to represent England at the national level as he joins the U16s for the Montaigu Tournament in France next month. His father, Shaun, earned 36 caps with the English National Team, including an appearance in the 2010 World Cup. His grandfather, Arsenal legend Ian Wright, earned 33 caps.

Ian, told The Sun, "Obviously we are very, very proud of him but D’Margio knows that the hard work starts now. We’re all well aware of the rewards players get at a very early age and these accolades are part of the progression."

Shaun made his Phoenix Rising FC debut this past Saturday in the club's home opener against Toronto FC II. He started and played a full 90 minutes.
