Shaun Wright-Phillips's football ability has been passed down to his son, with young D'Margio called into the England Under-16 squad.

Dad Shaun and uncle Bradley, both adopted by Ian Wright, both boast Premier League pedigree and now 16-year-old D'Margio has taken steps to continue a proud family tradition.

Shaun, who was born in Greenwich and played for Chelsea, City and QPR and is currently playing in the United States for Arizona side Phoenix Rising, won 36 England caps and scored six goals.

Bradley, born in Lewisham, enjoyed spells with City, Southampton, Plymouth, Charlton and Brentford before establishing himself as one of the best players in MLS with New York Red Bulls.

And his grandfather Ian Wright, the former Arsenal, Crystal Palace and West Ham striker, won 33 senior caps and scored nine goals.

Wright-Phillips will join the England Under-16s for the Montaigu tournament in France next month.

Also among a five-strong City contingent is Tommy Doyle, the grandson of the club's former captain Mike.
