It is a proud moment for any player to represent their national side. The youngsters will now get an opportunity to showcase their talent on a global stage.

Mainoo, a midfielder, and Fredricson, a centre-back, were recently named in UEFA Europa League’s B list squad against Real Sociedad. The 17-year-old defender also had a place on the bench against the Spanish opposition.

United’s bustling academy

United’s youth academy is amongst the best in the world. It is no surprise to see youngsters from our youth setup get a chance to represent the country.

Marcus Rashford is amongst the biggest stars to have represented England’s youth team and eventually broke into the senior side. The 24-year-old now has 46 caps for the Three Lions.

During pre-season, a host of young talent was on display for the Manchester-based club. Fans witnessed the likes of Zidane Iqbal and Charlie Savage shine in the friendlies.

The Iraqi national has especially turned a lot of eyes. Iqbal made his debut for United last season in a game against BSC Young Boys in the Champions League. The 19-year-old has been on the bench in the two most recent UEL fixtures. However, he has not featured in a competitive game yet.
