Ibragimov and Mantato feature for England

Amir Ibragimov has already featured for Manchester United’s under-18 team this season, playing 179 minutes.

He provided an assist in the recent draw with Wolves, showing an ability to make an impact already at just 14.

The youngster was born in Dagestan, Russia, but appears to have committed his international future to England.

Also involved was promising talent Bendito Mantato, who made an appearance for Manchester United’s under-18s side in pre-season in Northern Ireland.

The 15-year-old attacking midfielder wrote on Instagram that he hopes for many more opportunities to come with England as he continues to progress.

Playing for England will help both players with their development as they look to build successful careers at Manchester United in the years ahead.
