Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho dedicates first England goals to late Gran

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has dedicated his first two England goals to his late Nan.

The former Manchester City attacker started for the first time in the Euro 2020 qualifiers on Tuesday night and bagged his first goals on the international stage.

On only his eighth Three Lions appearance, the 19-year-old scored twice from close range thanks to the awareness of Raheem Sterling towards the end of the first half at Southampton's St. Mary's Stadium.

The England forward told ITV: "I'm just delighted to score my first goal for England.

"It means a lot to me personally, especially for my family.

"My goal was dedicated to my nan because she was a big fan of me but sadly she passed away."
