Jadon Sancho To Stay Put As Englishman Abroad Act Reaps Dividends

Rooney says he now enjoys watching England as a fan two years after he won his last cap

Sancho was handed a first call-up to the England squad last week by manager Gareth Southgate and was named on the bench for the trip to Croatia. And they know that in three or four years, when it's time for Sancho to move on, they'll get a lot more than that.

"I was just focused on improving as a player", Sancho said of his decision to join Dortmund while speaking at an England press conference on Wednesday. I'm so young and still have a lot to learn.

"It would be a dream come true [to make my debut against Croatia]. I just couldn't stop smiling for the whole day".

Paco Alcacer marked his return to the Spain national team with a brace, while Jadon Sancho made history with his England debut. I'm just grateful [Southgate] has seen my progress in the Bundesliga.

Sancho became even better at his game while he was at Manchester City but the prospect of not getting enough game time convinced him Manchester City wasn't the right option for him.

England midfielder Eric Dier believes the stream of young players coming into the global fold is helping to keep the more established names on their toes.

"Obviously Christian Pulisic is another young guy, and I learn from him all the time", Sancho said of the United States global.

Hurricane Michael dumps heavy rainfall on western Cuba -NHC
Monday, Michael's top sustained winds were around 80 miles per hour (129 kph) as it headed north at 9 miles per hour (14.5 kph). Michael is the 13th named storm of the 2018 hurricane season, according to hurricane center spokesperson Dennis Feltgen.

"Going up against global players, knowing that you've got the skill and you've got the ability to beat them".

"The opposition knows we have a real weapon in action as soon as Jadon enters (the field)", club captain Marco Reus said. The fans have so much passion for the game and support me every week.

Moving overseas will also benefit Sancho as a person.

The youngster admits he is enjoying a different life in Germany, and insists potential first-team opportunities were the motivation when opting to leave City and England. He tells me to do my thing.

Joining Sancho is fellow teenager Mason Mount, the Derby County midfielder on loan from Chelsea. His youth coach in Watford under-14 academy, Louis Lancaster, had asked him what his dream was and the 13 years old Sancho had promptly replied that he wanted to represent his country and make his family proud.

Mount revealed Lampard had playfully told him he had made the senior squad before challenging him to beat the 106 caps he accrued playing for the Three Lions. "Hopefully he can be a big part of England in the future if he keeps working hard".
