It was expected that Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood would make a return to the England team for the upcoming international games.

However, Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate has decided not to hand a call to Greenwood, as he bids the 19-year-old to be patient.

Greenwood has started the season in fine form with two goals in his first two matches, but Southgate has rather decided to leave him to continue his development with Manchester United.

“He is in our thoughts, very much,” said Southgate. “I spoke with him and his club. He’s a player we really like and he’s got every possibility to be a top England player.

“We’re all conscious we make that progression at right time. He’s just breaking into team at United with lot of responsibility and we want to get our progression with our seniors so we get best possible player at the end.

“We’re all aligned with that, Mason the club, his family. We decided it’s best he stays with his club.”
