Manchester United return to action on Saturday, but before that England had their final qualifier of the month at Wembley. England won the game 2-0, with Wayne Rooney becoming a record breaker by scoring his 50th international goal, however two other reds thoroughly impressed.
Chris Smalling played another superb game from the back, keeping a clean sheet and marshalling the back four superbly.
Luke Shaw also had a fantastic game, as he bombed forward on more than one occasion and even grabbed himself a fantastic assist for Harry Kane’s opener.
Its grab to see these two in particular doing so well on the field. Luke Shaw had an injury-hit campaign last time around but he’s doing well to turn that around, and Chris Smalling was the scapegoat at times last season but he’s began this year brilliantly.
Great to see Chris Smalling kicking on. Been saying for a good couple of years that he’d be a really important player for Utd. Rock solid.

Also said some time back that Chris Smalling would eventually have his season. This might be it.

Chris Smalling has been different gravy this season. Looks a completely different player.

3 assists in 3 games for super Luke Shaw. Of course he’s overrated and over priced because he plays for United though
