Jadon Sancho, a gem in the making?

Jadon Sancho, a gem in the making?

Borussia Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho was just as surprised as everyone else at his call-up to the senior England team this week.

With six assists already this term, Sancho is now the assist king of the Bundesliga, and his form has handed him a first call-up to the England senior squad.

In 2017, Jadon Sancho, a U-17 World Cup victor with England, rejected a new contract with Manchester City, due to disputes over assurance of playing time.

Southgate already had a young squad and there is a logic to picking players of a similar age.

His elevation caps a remarkable trip to the top for Sancho, who grew up in London surroundings so humble he didn't have a television to watch at times.

"My goal this season was to play as many games as I can".

The teenager is slowly learning German but adaptation to life on the field has been rapid, thanks in no small part to their trust in young players - and advice from the likes of team-mate Pulisic.

He will be hoping to make his bow for Gareth Southgate's team in upcoming UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain, while the Young Lions appear destined to be heading to next summer's European Championship in Italy. "I'm playing for my country". "It was a bit hard, but I'm glad the boys brought it home".

"Sancho's progress has been very, very rapid", said Southgate.

Chelsea are likely to face competition from Manchester City in the race to sign Jadon Sancho after it was revealed the Premier League champions do have the first refusal on the player.

"Moving from home was the biggest - leaving my mum and my sisters behind".

If he had left any other side than City then they would have regretted letting him go already but with their ridiculous amount of talent Pep Guardiola's side are still okay without him.

"That's... I don't know..."

Christian Pulisic, the U.S. global and a Dortmund team-mate, has been a big influence: "He is another young guy, and I learn from him".

Sancho's transfer from Watford to City helped prepare him for the mental leap to Germany - a move overseas he would recommend to like-minded players. "You never know what could happen in the future".

Ross Barkley largely failed to take his chance to impress in the Chelsea midfielder's first worldwide appearance for two-and-a-half years. A number of young players that he handed key roles in the England team have matured into top worldwide performers, such as Jordan Pickford, Jesse Lingard and John Stones.
