Sancho struggles continue with England snub


Jadon Sancho‘s difficult start to life at Manchester United has resulted in him being dropped from the England squad.

Sancho moved to United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer and has yet to score or assist in 12 appearances at the club.

Manchester United teammate Harry Maguire has made Gareth Southgate’s squad for the final round of World Cup qualifiers and Marcus Rashford also returns after recovering from shoulder surgery that ruled him out until October.

Elsewhere, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold has returned to the squad, as well as Sancho’s former Dortmund teammate Jude Bellingham.

Speaking on Sancho’s snub and Lingard also not making the cut, Southgate said: “With Jesse and Jadon, they just aren’t playing a lot of football compared to the others in their positions … they’ve got great competition for places.

“I spoke with them & they totally understood that, they get it.”
