Villa England hero Young frustrated by bench role

Aston Villa's England hero Ashley Young was disappointed not to start in their 2-2 draw with Switzerland.

Young came off the bench to hit the equaliser for the hosts.

He told ITV Sport: "We created chances and on another day they would have gone in.

On Darren Bent's missed chances, Young added: "I was thinking we were going to see the ripple of the net but it wasn't to be.

"He is disappointed but we created chances."

Young impressed in England's last qualifier against Wales and was frustrated not to start.

He said: "Of course I was disappointed to be on the bench but I took it on the chin and wanted to come on and do the best I can.

"I thought I did well when I came on but everybody in the dressing room is disappointed we didn't get the win.

"It is always nice to get on the scoresheet but it would have been a better feeling if we had got the three points."
