Four months after being recruited for 85 million by Manchester United, Jadon Sancho, transparent with the Red Devils, loses his place in the English selection.
Mocked for a few months for his catastrophic debut with Manchester United, Jadon Sancho falls a little lower. Nicknamed “Bencho” by other Premier League supporters, when he quickly lost his place in the Red Devils’ starting XI, and even “007”, since he did not score any goals or give an assist in 7 league appearances, the 21-year-old winger was not called up for England on Thursday.
Gareth Southgate, the boss of Three Lions, was a little embarrassed to do without the 21-year-old dribbler revealed at Borussia Dortmund (23 caps, 3 goals). ” About Jesse (Lingard) and Jadon, they haven’t played much football lately compared to other players at their positions », Explained the coach, who had to make choices to reinstate Marcus Rashford, another offensive player from MU, in the English squad.
To validate their qualification for the 2022 World Cup, with two last matches against Albania and San Marino, the English can count on their usual frames. Mason Mount, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Bukayoko Saka, Raheem Sterling and center forward Harry Kane and Tammy Abraham complete the offensive sector. Still no room for a Mason Greenwood or Emile Smith Rowe.
Confirming your #ThreeLions squad for November! 👊
