Jadon Sancho has been left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this month’s friendlies against Switzerland and Ivory Coast at Wembley which comes as a quick surprise to everyone. 

England squad to face Switzerland and Ivory Coast this month.

Having been left out of the previous camp in November after starting just four Premier League matches before the sacking of former United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the 21-year-old has enjoyed a noticeable return to form under interim boss Ralf Ragnick, he now has six league starts in the past five weeks, scoring twice and contributing three assists in that time.

Sancho’s surprise omission comes off after better performers in recent weeks scoring two goals and providing three assists in his last six Premier League outings.

Gareth Southgate on why Jadon Sancho wasn’t selected: “The other attacking players in the squad are slightly ahead of him in our feeling. Jadon over the last few weeks his performances have improved but it’s an area of the field we’ve got big competition for places.”

Jadon Sancho has been a rare bright spark  in what seems as a disastrous season for Manchester United including his sublime goal in 4-1 defeat to Manchester rivals.

The Three Lions lost last summer’s Euro 2020 final on penalties to Italy and just 18 members of Southgate’s squad for that tournament have made the current list and are aiming to end their 56-year wait for a major trophy at the World Cup later this year.

  1. The success of a team gives each player spot in international level.
    It’s obvious due to the fact that DDG was also omitted from Spain squad despite his good form
