Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley insists that he is not jinxed and an England cap will be on the cards shortly, The
The 22 year old was set to make his England debut against Holland on Wednesday night before picking up an ankle injury. Cleverley has been desperately unlucky with injuries this season and has played just four times in six months following two separate injury worries. The United midfielder is not expected to feature against Tottenham on Sunday, but could be back within a fortnight for the reigning Premier League champions.
Cleverley has not given up home of playing at Euro 2012, but with only two pre-tournament friendlies against Norway and Belgium remaining before France in the opening group game, the United midfielder is running out of time to stake his claim. The 22 year old is hopeful that United’s title run-in, as well as a long stint in the Europa League, can earn him a place.
‘It has been a massive season of highs and lows. I broke into the United team, which I waited a long time to do, I got an England call-up, but on the other side, I have had to deal with injury setbacks. My bad luck seems to be coming around on international breaks. I don’t feel that jinxed. I feel that if I can get fit and find some good form between now and the end of the season, that first cap will come. I’m not concerned about missing out at the moment’, Cleverley said.
