Still only 23, Cleverley made his international debut in August after a successful stint with the Great Britain Olympic team.
Yet so rapid has his rise been that the midfielder is the only man to start every England game this season.
"I have only had a short international career but I have played in some big games, against Brazil and Italy and the World Cup qualifiers," he said.
"I have had some good experiences in my short time with England. Hopefully Tuesday will be another."
