England coach Roy Hodgson has refused to shut the door on Young.
He told the Manchester Evening News: “Right now I’m not thinking about the World Cup, I’m thinking about playing for United. I’ve started against Shakhtar and hopefully when the manager picks the team again I can be involved again. That’s not for me to decide, that’s for the manager to decide. I’ll just have to keep training as hard as I have done.
“But you always want to play in the biggest tournaments, whether that’s at club level or international level, so of course I want to be on that plane to Brazil but I don’t think there’s a player who has been involved in the squad that doesn’t want to be on the plane.
“But I’m not too sure about my chances. You’d have to ask the England manager that.”
