Kobbie Mainoo called up to England first team for upcoming matches

Manchester United’s young sensation, Kobbie Mainoo, has received a monumental call-up to the England senior squad for their upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium.

Initially picked for the Under-21s, Mainoo’s exceptional performances have caught the eye of England’s senior team manager, Gareth Southgate, earning him a spot among the nation’s elite players.

These friendlies against Brazil and Belgium represent a golden opportunity for Mainoo to showcase his talent on the grand stage and stake his claim for a spot in the squad for Euro 2024.

Both matches will be held at the iconic Wembley Stadium, providing the 18 year-old with a platform to exhibit his skills against top-tier opposition.

This chance comes as England’s final games before Southgate finalizes his squad for the highly anticipated European Championship.

Mainoo’s journey from the Manchester United academy to the senior England squad is a testament to his dedication and talent.

Hailing from Stockport, the young midfielder has already gained experience at various youth levels for England, displaying promise and potential along the way.

Since making his debut for Manchester United’s first team in November, Mainoo has left a lasting impression with his performances.

With 19 appearances under his belt, including a memorable first goal against Newport in the FA Cup and a crucial winner against Wolves in the Premier League, Mainoo has proven himself as a player capable of making an impact at the highest level.
