England not my priority - Smalling

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is keen to play at both London Olympics and Euro 2012 next year but he insists that he is only focused to perform for the Red Devils.

"I have to say that England is not my first target at the moment and neither are the Olympics," Smalling told the Manchester Evening News. "United is what I am thinking about. But towards the end of the season I will be looking towards that and hopefully I might get into the England squad.

"Obviously I'd love to go there [Euro 2012]. There is also the Olympics as well. A lot of the lads who went to the Under-21 Championships last summer will be able to play in it. Whether it is the Euros, the Olympics, or both - you would like to be involved because these opportunities do not come around too often."

"Everybody's career is not plain sailing," he said. "I have been very much enjoying how it has gone over the last couple of years and hopefully it will stay on course. But I will be ready if there is a setback and I will work hard.

"When I was younger I stopped playing for a professional club after being at Millwall's academy. I was at school and I thought the chance in the pro game might not come again.
"But I was always going to give it a go and keep at it and worked hard. I never gave up and the reminder of that will always help me in the future.
"That will be the same response if I get a setback in the professional game. I learned from that. You cannot take anything for granted."
