Ole: England talk too soon for Greenwood

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says striker Mason Greenwood needs more time to develop before being called up to the senior England squad.

The 18-year-old scored his 10th goal in all competitions in United’s 4-0 win over Norwich on Saturday after only being on the field for a matter of minutes following a substitution.

His rapid rise into United’s first-team this season, coupled with Harry Kane’s hamstring injury, has seen speculation grow that he may be involved in Gareth Southgate’s England set-up ahead of this summer’s Euro 2020 finals.

“I think Mason will have a top career and a long career, let the boy settle in now before we talk about England or the Euros,” Solskjaer said.

“His focus has to be just on playing more for us and improving

“When he plays well for us, that will happen by itself. He’s been picked for England’s Under-21s lately. He’s just focusing on his football.”
