Man City's Richards a natural from first England training session

England boss Steve McClaren admits Manchester City defender Micah Richards was a natural from day one of his involvement with the full squad.

"They might be playing well for their club, but it's all about when they join up, their first training session," McClaren said. "Can they handle the occasion? Have they got the character? Can they mix well? And Richards, just from day one, breezed in. He was vocal, he was aggressive, he wanted the ball and he had no fear."
