At Wembley on Sunday I was a little disappointed that our new signing, from Fulham, Chris Smalling didn`t start.

I thought it`d be the perfect opportunity to see the youngster in action, in a competitive match, to be able to gauge what he`ll be able to contribute to our side after his big money move.

Chris may not have started in that match but I`ve no doubt he has a future at United and tonight he continues his football education playing for the England U21 side against Uzbekistan.

The youngster certainly isn`t lacking in the confidence department and beforehand has spoken about how he perceives he could soon be looking at appearing in the full England side, remarking,

“If I can do well and get games for United there`s a chance in the longer term of getting into the England squad.”

There is Chris but one step at a time please; you`ve some serious competition ahead of you for central defensive spots in the shape of Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans and O`Shea!
