Manchester United ace Ashley Young is delighted with his goal scoring form for England.

Young has quickly established himself under Roy Hodgson after scoring the first goal of the new England manager’s reign in Norway.

That made it six goals in nine games for Young, who now believes England can enjoy success at the Euros with such low expectations placed upon them this summer.

Young, who has won 20 caps, told the Mirror: “I’ve been chipping away with a few goals, assists and starting regularly which is something I’ve set out to do.

“Hopefully, fingers crossed, if I keep playing the way I have been then we can have success at this ­tournament.

“I think I’ve always felt part of the group. There’s a great spirit. ­Whenever you meet up, everyone gets on with everyone else. You’re playing for your country, it’s an honour to pull on an England shirt.

“It can be daunting when you first come into a squad. It was for me when I first got in, but I was made to feel at home straightaway and that’s what good players do.

“They do their best to help you bed in and feel part of the squad immediately. It helps with togetherness.”
