BIO

The FA Crest

Sam won his first England senior call-up in March 2021, after some scintillating displays for West Bromwich Albion during their Premier League campaign in 2020-21.

The Preston-born stopper had been on the international radar long before that though, having picked up caps at U16, U17, U19 and U20 level while he was coming through the ranks at his first club, Manchester United.

During those years, he became an U17 EURO champion in 2010, helped the MU19s to reach a EURO semi-final two years later and then play in a FIFA U20 World Cup in 2013.

On a domestic front, Johnstone moved away from Old Trafford to get the first-team chances he wanted and impressed in loan spells with Doncaster Rovers, his hometown club Preston North End and Aston Villa before he made a permanent switch to West Brom in 2018. 

He's since established himself as one of the best English goalkeepers having helped the Hawthorns club win promotion back to the top flight in 2019-20 before excelling in his first full season in the Premier League.
