Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho: England have exciting generation

Borussia Dortmund whiz Jadon Sancho is proud to be part of a generation of exciting English footballers.

The former Manchester City and Watford junior is now part of England's senior squad.

“The growth in England at the moment is crazy," he said. “There's a lot of great young players out there. They're so determined to play, and watching their idols play. The Champions League is the greatest stage, so I hope the young players reach their potential and enjoy it too.

“I watched the final on a live stream on the internet. I got a medal. That's the best thing that's happened to me in my England career so far.

"I'm just grateful he (Southgate) has seen my progress in the Bundesliga. I'm really thankful.

“I was at training when I first got the call, and straight away I told my parents. They were delighted for me, and I couldn't stop smiling for the whole day."
