England Under-21 defender Phil Jones says that having played with a trio of Manchester United players at international level in the summer made the switch to Old Trafford far easier.
The former Blackburn Rovers centre back joined the Premier League Champions in June, and spending a fortnight in Stuart Pearce's squad for the UEFA European Under-21 Championship was invaluable for more than one reason.
Jones told ManUtd.com: "It’s very helpful. I know Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Chris Smalling, who are all great lads that I’ve played with England at under-21 level.
"It’s been a pleasure to work with them, and they’ve told me all about the club and how good it is."
Jones also struck up a central defensive partnership with his now Manchester United colleague Chris Smalling, something he hopes will be able to continue for club and country in the future.
"That will only help. We’ve done really well together with England and kept quite a few clean sheets. We communicate well and read each other’s game, which is a good thing to have in a partnership at the back."Players born on or after 1 January 1990 are all eligible to play in this qualifying period, and any subsequent Finals appearance.
