Man Utd’s Ashley Young earns England recall
Manchester United winger-turned-full-back Ashley Young has earned a recall to the England squad.
The 32-year-old has been named in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the friendlies against Germany and Brazil later this month.
Young has 30 caps and seven goals for the national team, but has not played for the Three Lions since 2013.
His return to prominence within Jose Mourinho’s United squad appears to have caught Southgate’s attention.
Young made only eight Premier League appearances during all of last season, but has made six already this term.
He is joined in the squad by club-mates Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford.
Young will be quickly reacquainted with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli following their clash at Old Trafford last weekend.
