One of the few players in Gareth Southgate’s squad over the age of 30, Ashley Young has enjoyed something of a renaissance under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after switching to a new position as a full-back.  

Rarely a regular in the Three Lions’ starting XI after making his debut in 2007, Young has been a member of only one squad at a major tournament for England before: starting all four games at UEFA EURO 2012. After featuring in qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™, there was a four-year wait for Young until his recent recall – with Gareth Southgate selecting the now full-back/wing-back for a friendly against Brazil in November 2017. Once a winger who would do his utmost to beat a full-back, Young now finds himself with the shoe firmly on the other foot, able to hold his own as a full-back or wing-back on either flank.
