MU center-back used his non-inclusion in England’s World Cup squad to take a vacation in Thailand and Vietnam.

Manchester United’s Chris Smalling tried out his football skills on a shuttlecock on the banks of the Hoan Kiem Lake on Thursday.

As the center-back for the team most popular among football crazy Vietnamese fans, Smalling was mobbed by fans and the press on his arrival.

Smalling, 28, who chose his non-selection in the England World Cup 2018 squad to take a vacation with his wife, visited Thailand before coming to Vietnam.

Here are some images of his trip to Vietnam:
