Young pays tribute to England's 'unbelieveable' spirit in squad

By Owen Sheffield

Ashley Young says England's "unbelievable" team spirit, togetherness and winning mentality is better than anything he has seen before with the national team.

Anticipation for the Group G opener against Tunisia on June 18 goes up a notch when Gareth Southgate's men jet out to Russia on Tuesday to continue a preparation camp that has impressed in terms of quality and kinship.

It is 11 years since Young won the first of 34 caps for his country, which came during a time where cliques and club rivalries were said to have been prevalent in the national squad.

"I would say it is different," Young said. "It is different.

"I think a lot has been said about staying in cliques and teams staying in teams, but I've not seen that at all here.

"Everyone gets on with everyone, and there is not a bad person in the squad.

"Everybody wants the end result, and everyone wants to go and win."
