Aston Villa boss O'Neill: Young will be key England player

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is sure Ashley Young will become a key part of England's plans in the future.

O'Neill said: "Should Ashley get a call up? That's not really my decision but I think he's a fantastic footballer whose time will come. He's had a great, great season for us and the England manager has come pretty often to see him.

"I'm sure at some stage or another he will give him that opportunity and I think Ashley will shine."

Young, who struck in Villa's 1-1 draw with Bolton, added: "I have my fingers crossed I can get myself back in the England squad, but I have to concentrate on Aston Villa first."
