Young has forced his way back into the England fold following consistently good performances as United's first-choice left-back. "It's a World Cup, my first one - of course family and friends want to go to it", he said.

"I've said it from the time I saw him in the youth team - he's got a massive future ahead of him".

Rashford is heading to his second tournament with England having become the youngest Three Lions player to feature in a major competition, when he came from the bench in the 2-1 win over Wales at Euro 2016.

Young also thinks the sky is the limit in terms of what Gareth Southgate's young squad can achieve at the World Cup.

Ashley Young is part of England's 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia (Nick Potts/PA).

"It's the World Cup and it could be his stage to show everybody how far he's come since his debut", said Young, 32.

Young and England team-mate Dele Alli had a heated exchange at Old Trafford in October (Martin Rickett/PA). He's very comfortable with who he is and I think he should be - he is a fantastic young boy and a great player.

Kellogg is asking that people who purchased the potentially affected cereal discard it and contact the company for a full refund. NY has the highest number of reported cases with seven; followed by California, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, each with five.

He was in impressive form last season, playing in 38 United matches, but he says that, despite his versatility, he "would rather be attacking than defending".

"He's definitely been fantastic for us at United and he's definitely going to be a major player for us at the World Cup".

Cahill believes England's youthful squad possesses more experience than age suggests as a result of players' club exploits and Young insists the "togetherness" Southgate has harnessed should not be underestimated.

"When we're on the pitch I'm not sure how we would react to it".

"I wasn't in squads, but I said before that I never gave up hope of getting back into England squads".

"Different managers play different formations".

The two Manchester United players are in the England squad that is preparing for the tournament to be staged in Russian Federation. We are focused on not just being out there - it's going there to try to win a World Cup and I have every confidence in everyone's ability in the squad that we can go and do that.
