Man City have an edge in Sancho race

"That's mad! Woah! I don't know what to say to that", said Sancho. And his passion and love for the game could be seen in his current team Dortmund after making a bold decision to move away from Manchester City.

The former Australia goalkeeper believes Sancho will learn immeasurably from making the permanent switch to Dortmund, and feels improved player welfare makes the switch overseas not such an extreme decision.

England's Gareth Southgate insists players such as Chelsea's Ross Barkley must take his chance and prove he deserves a spot in the squad in the UEFA Nations League against Croatia and Spain.

The teenager is slowly learning German but adaptation to life on the field has been rapid, thanks in no small part to their trust in young players - and advice from the likes of team-mate Pulisic.

But the hosts won't be able to count on any support in their first home match since the World Cup with the game being played behind closed doors in Rijeka.

"It would be a dream come true (to make my debut against Croatia). Schnitzel... that's really nice, but I've never tried the beer".

Sancho got the same award at the European Under-17 championships past year, as well as being part of the squad that won the Under-17 World Cup, although his participation was limited after being recalled by Dortmund halfway through the tournament to play for the first team. You have to keep working hard every day.

He divested him from the dignity of Cardinal when a credible accusation of the abuse of a minor became evident. Of this, I am proud and thank you.

"I'm fed up with all these players stuck in the under-23s not playing for their clubs". Everyone feels they're ready for the next step.

According to the Mirror if any club does want to make a move for the 18 year old then they'll have to spend around £100 million. I can't just go down the road and see my friends.

"I was at training when I first got the call-up", he said.

"Christian Pulisic is another young guy, and I learn from him". The setting is flawless for Sancho and a move away at this stage does not have the legs to be supported by logic right now. By doing that he has also sent out a wider message, namely he is watching all English players, including those who are overseas.

"I believe in myself, so moving to Germany didn't faze me".

There has been talk for many years about the lack of opportunities given to young domestic talent, especially at the top clubs, and whether it is good for their development and that of the national team for them to be sitting on the bench or going out on loan to a club in a lower league.
