"If you'd have said two or three years ago that Ashley would still be playing for [Manchester] United, let alone breaking back into the England team and playing really well as a left wing-back, it would have surprised everyone."
Neville, who played 602 times for United after making his debut against Torpedo Moscow in 1992, thinks he knows why.
"You have to remember that he's from good stock," he says. "If Sir Alex Ferguson signed you, then nine times out of 10 he got it right when it came to character. When you watch Ashley Young play, when you see him digging in, you see a determination and a character. You can see Jose Mourinho and Gareth Southgate using him for these reasons. He might not be everybody's perfect player, but he's had a really good tournament and he'll never let you down because you know exactly what you are going to get from him."
Young, who has taken England corners and free kicks, has faced competition from younger players.
"There was a point after the Colombia game where I thought England might bring Danny Rose back in for Ashley," says Neville, "but Gareth Southgate was right to stick with him because he had that continuity and momentum going."
Jesse Lingard is another Manchester United player who has had a successful World Cup.
