Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Mason Greenwood should not be concerned about call up by the national team.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels it is too soon to decide if Mason Greenwood is worthy of being selected by the England national team for the Euro 2020.

Mason Greenwood was brought into the Man United first team by Jose Mourinho back in 2018. But it was not until Ole Gunnar SOlskjaer’s appointment, last year, that Greenwood made his debut for the club.

The 18-year old forward has been living up to the expectations so far. Greenwood has scored nine goals in all competitions for the Red Devils this season and has been selected by the England Under-21 team.

England’s first-choice striker Harry Kane’s injury could mean that Greenwood could possibly make his senior debut for his national side. But Solskjaer feels it is too soon to tell yet.

“I think Mason will have a top and long career,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“Let the boy settle in now first before we talk about England and the Euros. His focus has to be on playing more for us and improving.

“When he plays more for us that’ll happen by itself. He’s just been picked for the Under-21s so he’s focusing on his football.”
