England struggled to draw with Switzerland on Saturday.
Young believes the current England side has the right blend of youth and experience despite their stutter against the Swiss.
He said: "I think we've got a good mix in the squad. You look at the senior players in the team and youngsters who are coming through.
"We've got a good balance from the back to the front. With the new formation we are playing (4-3-3), it helps everyone rotate.
"Everyone knows their jobs, we all work for each other and we showed that team spirit by coming from 2-0 down. It shows the character we've got."
