The FA Crest

The Manchester United man re-emerged as an England player in 2017, following an impressive stint as a left-back at Old Trafford, having previously won 30 caps as a midfielder.

His recall for the games with Germany and Brazil came four years after his previous appearance in 2013 too, with the former Watford and Aston Villa man having previously stated he’d never given up working hard to play for the Three Lions again.

A dab hand from set-plays and full of pace, Young’s determination and re-invention as a full-back typifies his attitude and commitment for both club and country.

"They have to work, they have to show themselves with a certain kind of attitude towards negative moments. I show them, as an example, Ashley Young who was, in my opinion, phenomenal with his attitude, positivity and determination."
