Mac impressed by Micah

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."
