England manager Fabio Capello was pleased with the new faces of the National Team. Young, who joined the Red Devils from Aston Villa in the last transfer window for a reported amount of £16 million, has had a great start of the season. One of the reasons for this terrific start is that Young has been to the preseason tour of USA with the rest of the Manchester United team: this has allowed Young to bode in well with his teammates. He has also netted twice and offered four assists in the opening four Premier League matches.
He also scored for England against Wales and his goal proved enough for the Three Lions to edge past a young Wales side. Capello, who didn't select Young for the last World Cup in South Africa, thinks that the added pressure of playing for a big club like United has made Young mature.
The England boss has declared recently that now the pressure that Young has to face in each game is very big: this situation is comparable to what happen when playing for the National Team and it has given him a lot of confidence. Capello believes that this maturation is a normal process when playing for top teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United or Bayern Munich.
Capello used to be quite critical of Young's approach towards important matches, but now he appreciates the player's versatility. Young has managed to scored three times in his last six appearances for England and has partnered fantastically well with Wayne Rooney up front. He can play as a second striker behind Rooney and is fast with good imagination. As a second striker he can also score goals: he can shoot with both foots.
You can bet the Italian is not going to leave the Three Lions before the end of next summer tournament in Ukraine and Poland and is planning to rejuvenate the team with the addition of youth players like Tom Cleverley and Jack Wilshere: Capello hopes to improve after the disastrous World Cup campaign. The England boss has done this earlier in his long career and he believe that it's part of his job to blood youth.
Recently skipper John Terry has declared that the manager has an incredible attention to detail. He is applying a great intensity in trying to revive the country's fortunes, following the humiliation suffered against Germany in South Africa last summer. In doing that, he makes no apologies and he is prepared to drop senior players.
Capello has also changed his style in some respect: he is prepared to send his players on holiday next summer before the finals in Poland and Ukraine. This demonstrate that he has learned from what happened in South Africa: the strict regime didn't work and for the last
