Mainoo called up to England squad

Manchester United’s Kobbie Mainoo has been called up to the England squad for the forthcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.

Mainoo made his Man Utd first team debut against Everton in November and has since made a further 19 appearances, impressing pundits and fans alike.

England play Brazil on Saturday and Belgium at Wembley on 26th March.
