Southgate hails United character

England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate admits the mentality instilled into Manchester United's players makes them easier to manage at international level.

Two youngsters who have risen through the Reds' ranks - Michael Keane and Jesse Lingard - are in Southgate's squad for the European Championship qualifier against Wales on Monday evening. Unfortunately their long-term team-mate Sam Johnstone has had to withdraw through injury, as has Wilfried Zaha, Sir Alex Ferguson's last-ever signing for United.

In a recent interview with ManUtd.com, Southgate backed the ethos at the Aon Training Complex to produce rounded individuals and professionals capable of forging a career - either with United or elsewhere.

"I think the United character is important," he explained. "We have a duty when developing young players to develop people as well. Through coaches like Paul McGuinness, Warren Joyce and Brian McClair at United, I know they have good habits when they come and there are never any problems with them. They come to learn, train hard and obviously they have good quality as well. That makes life for us a lot easier when the boys come through the door like that.

"I think that’s one of the great things about United over the years - it’s not just the players who have got into their own first team but, when I go and see a team like Leicester City play, two or three of the lads have grown up at United through their system. They have developed boys who have had successful careers in the game at one level or another, and that’s important."

Lingard and Zaha are ineligible for the Toulon tournament in the summer as they are too old for the Under-20 event. England face Qatar in their opening fixture on 22 May with Johnstone and Keane in the coach's plans.

"It’s only the 1992 birthdays like Jesse who couldn’t come to that and Wilf is the same," added Southgate. "But lots of the others are eligible. We need to expose the boys to a different sort of challenge and will play teams from South America and Asia within that. It’s just a different style and we’ll find out whether we can defend and how we need to defend against that sort of opposition."

United name squad for Bray Manchester United are set to take a provisional 19-man Reserves squad to Ireland for Sunday's friendly against Bray Wanderers.

Warren Joyce can call upon the services of exciting forward Tom Lawrence, who made his first-team debut last term. A number of other players who reached the Barclays Under-21 Premier League final are travelling and there is plenty of experience in the shape of Tom Thorpe, Marnick Vermijl and Davide Petrucci.

Several Academy graduates have also been promoted to the party, including striker Ashley Fletcher, and they look certain to push for regular inclusion as the second-string's season progresses.

 

Squad: Kieran O'Hara, Joel Castro Pereira; Callum Evans, Donald Love, Tom Thorpe, Ryan McConnell, Paddy McNair, Saidy Janko, Guillermo Varela, Marnick Vermijl; Ben Pearson, Andreas Pereira, Davide Petrucci, Joe Rothwell, Sean Goss, Josh Harrop, Matty Willock; Tom Lawrence, Ashley Fletcher.

Marnick Vermijl: 'Van Gaal took me aside on Thursday. He told me he would take a limited group to the US, two players per position'

Elko Born @Elko_B · 11m
Vermijl: 'LVG said: "I could take you, but you wouldn't get any minutes". I had imagined my first confrontation with LVG would be different'

 

The Peoples Person @PeoplesPerson_ · 17m

Vermijl is disappointed to not be going on tour. Said Moyes had promised he'd be part of it. Also said his agent is looking for a new club.

The Peoples Person @PeoplesPerson_ · 8m

Vermijl also said LVG took him aside on Thursday + told him he took 2 players per position (Rafa+Smalling). LVG took 4 goalkeepers on tour.



So Smalling is going as Backup RB as per Vermijl.

There's always a few injuries in pre-season - some of the panic at the absence of Wilson, Powell and Henriquez has been crazy this time

That's probably due to LVG's reputation about bringing through youth - so some people thought that he's gonna promote half the reserve team in one week.

      Carrick set for Under-21 outing
       
      Manchester United have a first, and only, Barclays Under-21 Premier League assignment in October when travelling south to face West Ham United this evening (Friday).
       
      The match, which is being shown live on MUTV, presents Warren Joyce's third-placed side with an opportunity to regain top spot in the table above neighbours Manchester City. 
       
      Louis van Gaal has stressed he will use the Under-21 games to increase the fitness of some of his senior stars and has confirmed Michael Carrick will feature after being an unused substitute at West Brom. The midfielder will step up his comeback from an ankle operation against his former club’s second string.
       
      James Wilson could be an option to partner Will Keane in attack but United's Under-21 top scorer Adnan Januzaj had a full 90 minutes at The Hawthorns. Keane, of course, scored a hat-trick in the Lancashire Senior Cup win at Accrington Stanley recently and is looking to get off the mark in the division this term.
       
      James Weir promoted his claims with a goal in the behind-closed-doors friendly with Burnley last week but defender Paddy McNair looks set to miss out with a minor hamstring injury.
       
      The Hammers, who will host the match at their Rush Green training ground, are second from bottom in the table but defeated Sunderland 2-0 in their last outing.

      Loughborough 0 United Youth XI 2    
      A Manchester United Youth XI defeated Loughborough Students 2-0 with goals by Sean Goss and Ashley Fletcher.
       
      Paul McGuinness fielded an Under-19 line-up that included Goss, Fletcher and Matty Willock in addition to his Academy squad in a match played in memory of the home team's former coach Mike 'Doc' Holliday.
       
      The game was only eight minutes old when the hosts lost possession deep inside their own half and Marcus Rashford's intelligent backheel allowed Goss to fire a superb shot past Jack Howard and in off the far post. Rashford and Fletcher were convinced a penalty should have been awarded when they tried to reach a cross by Tyler Reid but Loughborough hit back and Dean Henderson was close to being embarrassed when his clearance struck Alun Webb and trickled wide.
       
      After Rashford almost danced through on his own, Devonte Redmond spurned a glorious chance when scooping over from close range. Joe Riley was also off target from a promising position while Rashford was unlucky with a diving header from a Riley centre that flashed wide.
       
      Willock started the second half brightly as the game opened up and, after firing wide, he curled a shot past Howard only to see it bounce back off the bar. United turned up the heat on a blustery night and, after Rashford was unable to finish off a devastating run by Riley, the no.9 capitalised on a mistake by Josh Dickens to release Fletcher and the target man finished clinically past the advancing Howard.
       
      The Students responded with an incisive move that should have led to a goal by the lively Webb, but he snatched at the opportunity, before Jack Poxton tested substitute goalkeeper George Dorrington. United assumed total control but could not add a third goal during a dominant spell that contained some attractive football.
       
      Fletcher was unable to profit from a poor Howard clearance, the keeper atoning by holding the venomous shot, Redmond drilled wide after slicing through the home defence and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson's mishit cross dropped the wrong side of the far post.
       
      At the other end, Poxon attempted a drive that deflected wide of a stranded Dorrington but came back off an upright while Fletcher was twice unable to convert decent openings as the chances continued to come thick and fast. Rashford spun Luke Trotman to race clear but supplied a disappointing finish from an ever-decreasing angle.
       
      Rashford latched onto a Riley through ball but was again unable to add a third goal as he fluffed his shot with the Reds unable to match the 6-2 goalfest of two years ago and yet were still good value for the victory, even allowing for the fact Ben Ward-Cochrane's last-minute effort was ruled out for offside. 
       
      United: Henderson (Dorrington 46); Reid, Tuanzebe, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson; Riley, Goss, Willock, Redmond; Rashford, Fletcher. Subs not used: Thompson, McTominay, Croskery.

      U18s: United 0 Sunderland 2
       
      Manchester United’s Under-18s slipped to defeat against a strong and well organised Sunderland team at the Aon Training Complex on Saturday.
       
      It was a cloudy, but pleasant and fresh morning when the action commenced and the opening exchanges of this early afternoon Barclays Under-18 Premier League clash with Wearside’s finest certainly had a bright and breezy feel to them.
       
      Buoyed by victories in their previous two outings, Paul McGuinness’ side were looking to complete the hat-trick and their early play suggested that the Reds were in the mood to achieve that target.
       
      Sunderland, who were kitted out in a smart, all-blue kit, also raced out of the blocks looking more than capable of giving the hosts plenty to think about.        
       
      All the ingredients for a lively encounter appeared to in place and that’s how it unfolded with neither side assuming command but enjoying enough moments in their opponents’ half to generate encouragement.
       
      Real goal chances were rare in the opening period, but the visitors made the most of one they created when winger Jordan Blinko found the net past United’s George Dorrington in the 24th minute.
       
      The Reds introduced two substitutes, Callum Gribbin and Zachary Dearnley, at the start of the second half and it was the latter who was presented with a great opportunity to claim the leveller but his shot, following fine work by Marcus Rashford, flew wide of the upright.
       
      Sunderland, who had been enjoying a positive spell, doubled their lead in the 66th minute. Dorrington’s kick up field failed to find the intended destination and came to ground at the feet of Sunderland’s Ethan Robson. The Black Cats’ youngster took full advantage of his fortune and launched an unstoppable shot to give his side a two-goal cushion.
       
      Not surprisingly, Sunderland’s second strike gave their confidence a huge boost and United had to dig deep in an attempt to salvage something from the contest.
       
      Joe Riley raised hopes in the closing stages with two shots on target that required attention from Black Cats’ keeper James Talbot but the visitors held firm thereafter.
       
      United: Dorrington; Reid, Tuanzebe, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson; Riley, J.Thompson (McTominay 81), Redmond, Rathbone (Dearnley 46); Rashford, Croskery (Gribbin 46). Sub not used: Henderson (GK).
