Chris Smalling Biography

Christopher Lloyd "Chris" Smalling is an English footballer who plays as a centre-back for Manchester United and the England national team. Initially, Smalling played for the Millwall academy before joining local non-league side Maidstone United. He was selected for the Kent Schools Under-16 squad in 2005 before progressing to the Under-18s in 2007, and his performances for Kent Schools resulted in him being selected to play for the England Schools Under-18 squad in 2008. His impressive displays for club and country led to him signing a two-year deal with Middlesbrough in May 2008. Barely a month into signing with the club, he terminated the contract and signed for Premier League side Fulham in June 2008. He made his professional debut with them in May 2009 in the final game of the 2008–09 season and helped them reach the 201o Europa League final the following season. In July, he joined the Manchester United and made his competitive debut in the 2010 Community Shield victory over Chelsea which earned him his first career medal. Since his debut, he has gone on to make more than 30 appearances for the club. Smalling has represented England at various levels and is currently a member of the England senior squad. He made his debut for the England senior squad in the 3–0 win over Bulgaria on 2 September 2011.
