Compare Jadon Sancho and 5 strikers of the Three Lions: Gareth Southgate unfair?

19 Mar 2022 | 09:18

 Jadon Sancho revived strongly in recent times, but the 21-year-old star was suddenly not summoned by England.

Coach Southgate explained the decision to exclude Sancho and Rashford from this gathering

The former Dortmund star had a rather difficult start at Man Utd. He is not the preferred choice of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, when Ralf Rangnick came to power, Sancho gradually regained his confidence and displayed the qualities that people expected. The striker born in 2000 is occupying a main kick in the left wing corridor, being an inspiration on the Red Devils attack over the past time.

 Jadon Sancho is not called up with the Three Lions for the upcoming friendly series.

However, in this national team gathering, Sancho was suddenly crossed out. Coach Gareth Southgate explained: “Our feeling is that the other attacking players in the team are now a little bit better than Jadon.”

However, the explanation of this captain is really not satisfactory, if you compare Sancho’s stats with the rest of the strikers with the same position. Jack Grealish is also being criticized for poor form, the numbers speak for themselves, but the former Aston Villa star is still on the Three Lions’ summoning list.

Jadon Sancho was one of three players who missed a penalty in the Euro 2020 final against Italy. This is also the biggest ripple in the career of the 21-year-old striker. Marcus Rashford – who also missed the penalty kick, was eliminated in this gathering. However, Man Utd’s No. 10 is in decline, it is understandable that he was crossed out.
