Walcott tips Sancho for England success

Walcott tips Sancho for England success

Lancaster, who is still in contact with Sancho, goes on to express that Sancho is a young boy and all the pressure is on him, and " that could have gone to his head, it could have have been too much, but it hasn't ". I thought he came on and made an impact as well.

With memories of their World Cup semi-final disappointment still raw, Gareth Southgate's decision to parade England's brightest young thing feels shrewd.

"Jadon Sancho, when he came on, I think he was really positive and had a really positive impact, was fearless and took people on and that is what you want from young players".

However, whether or not Dortmund are able to hold on to him remains to be seen, with the report above suggesting that a whole host of clubs from the Premier League are eager to take him back to England.

Stuart Brennan writes that City inserted a buyback clause in his Dortmund contract when he departed for Germany, meaning they are likely to get first refusal should another club decide to make an offer for him.

Sancho was part of the England squad that won the 2017 Under-17 World Cup, even if he couldn't play beyond the group stage after Dortmund withdrew him from the tournament in India.

"I was at training when I first got the call-up and straight away I called my parents", Sancho told reporters.

Joining Sancho is fellow teenager Mason Mount, the Derby County midfielder on loan from Chelsea.

"The opposition knows we have a real weapon in action as soon as Jadon enters (the field)", club captain Marco Reus said. "I just liked how he used to carry his team sometimes... and obviously he used to try things that no one else would try".

"He could be our Neymar-type player, in terms of being unpredictable", the former MK Dons manager said.

"The growth in England at the moment is insane", added Sancho. He's given me loads of advice so far and I'm just trying to take it all in.

"I'm learning German, of course".

"I actually found out before he pulled me in the office".

"I'm just grateful that he's seeing my progress in the Bundesliga and very thankful".

Southgate's appreciation of Mount's talent became clear when he asked the youngster to train with his squad for four days before they jetted off to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

His promising displays in Germany saw him become the first player born this millennium to be called up by the senior team.
