Man Utd defender Mengi thrilled with England senior chance

Manchester United defender Teden Mengi was delighted to take part in senior England training this week.

The Manchester Evening News says Mengi bolstered the options to Gareth Southgate's side over the past few days as they played matches against Andorra and Hungary as part of World Cup qualifying.

Mengi, 19, was named in the England U20 side for their own matches over the international schedule before getting an unexpected invite to train with the senior squad at St. George's Park.

"Opportunities you only dream of as a young boy," Mengi tweeted on Wednesday. "It's been an honour to train with the seniors during this international break.

"Back to club football now with motivation on a different level!"
