Euro 2020: Why Sancho has not played for England yet – Gareth Southgate
By: in Sports

Gareth Southgate, England’s manager, has explained why Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has yet to play in Euro 2020.

Sancho is one of Europe’s most highly rated attacking players, but he has yet to play a minute for England in the tournament.

The 21-year-old was omitted from the squad for the 1-0 victory over Croatia on June 13.

Southgate was quoted by Sky Sports as saying ahead of England’s clash with Czech Republic on Tuesday,

“We have some explosive options and a lot of them are young players and experiencing a big tournament for the first time.”

“So, as a coaching staff, we are realistic about our expectations of them as individuals.

“Jadon is in that mix. He has trained well the last few days and of course, we have got those options and those decisions to make.”

He added: “I think a lot of those players we didn’t have for the friendlies, so the chemistry is something we didn’t have a lot of opportunity to work on.

“We’ve got to just keep working on that. We know there are some very good players in there, we know they can perform better than they did (against Scotland) and we’ve got to help them to find that level.

“The important thing is that everyone gets behind the team and the players and they are going to need to feel that support and to feel that warmth.

“This is a relatively inexperienced group, I think the third least caps in the tournament.

Against Scotland, it was a young team so that is a different experience for a lot of them than they’ve ever faced before.

“They have just about survived it.

We want to be better and that’s what we’re going to work through in the next few days before we play the Czech Republic.”
