Mac impressed by Micah

16 Nov 2006 - 11:34:07

Manchester City defender Micah Richards won praise from coach Steve McClaren after an impressive international debut in the 1-1 draw with Holland.

The 18-year-old Citizens starlet showed up well at right-back, marking Chelsea's Arjen Robben tightly for most of the 90 minutes in the Amsterdam ArenA.

McClaren said afterwards: "Micah has come into the squad and not been fazed.

"It seems like he has been with us for years and I had no qualms about picking him.

"When you play Holland, you have to defend well in one-on-one situations. He did that, as he has always done for his club.

"He handled Arjen Robben and Rafael van der Vaart very well."
