The 29-year-old hasn’t appeared for the Three Lions since playing against Ukraine in September 2013. He has seven goals in 30 appearances for the national team, and if he could continue his domestic form there is a definite chance that he will add to these.

The former Watford man has been starting regularly for the Red Devils, even displacing record signing Angel Di Maria from the team. This is especially surprising as he was struggling to get in to the match-day squad at all last time round under David Moyes.

He said: “Of course, I’d like to play for England again. It’s one of those things where I have to keep playing as well as I can for United and, if called upon by the England manager, then I’d be delighted.”

However, Young may find it difficult to get back in to Roy Hodgson’s plans as fellow wideman Andros Townsend impressed in the last international encounter against Italy, scoring the equalising goal against the Azzurri.
