With the Games on the doorstep of the Greenwich-born defenderâs manor, it would be a career highlight.
âI have to say that England is not my first target at the moment and neither are the Olympics. United is what I am thinking about,â Smalling told the Manchester Evening News. âBut towards the end of the season I will be looking towards that and hopefully I might get into the England squad. Obviously Iâd love to go there.
âThere is also the Olympics as well. A lot of the lads who went to the Under-21 Championships last summer will be able to play in it.
âWhether it is the Euros, the Olympics, or both â you would like to be involved because these opportunities do not come around too often.â
