I want to be part of the squad in Russia 2018 - Manchester United Ashley Young

After earning a recall to the England squad, Manchester United player Ashley Young has come his target is to make the final squad to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.  The 32-year-old's impressive rejuvenation means the converted wing-back is on the cusp of his first England appearance in more than four years as Gareth Southgate looks set to move to a back-three formation in the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
Young could now win his first international cap since coming off the bench as a winger in a goalless draw in Ukraine in September 2013, and is ready to play anywhere on the pitch in his bid to be on the plane to Russia next year.
He said “I'd prefer it if I was playing further up the pitch, but I've been able to adapt and play as a left-back or a right-back and as a wing-back, I've been enjoying football, playing well. Every time I put on the shirt I feel like I've played well and that I deserve the call-up. As a footballer nowadays you have to be able to adapt and play in different positions, different formations, different systems," he said. "It's just whether you can adapt to that. The manager is talking about a 3-4-3 or wing-backs or 3-5-2 and I feel like I can step into that role. I've shown I am deserving to be in the England squad but I don't just want a place in the squad, I want to be in the team. I'm one of those players who wants to play every game and the World Cup is a long way away - but at the back of my mind I think every English player wants to go to the World Cup.”
