Villa winger Young defends England quality

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young insists England are on the right track.

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."
