Marcus Rashford believes Jadon Sancho could play a big role in England’s win against Germany can play on Tuesday evening – even if the winger from Borussia Dortmund does not make it to the round of 16 of the Euro 2020.
The 21-year-old Sancho played his first six minutes of the finals as a late substitute in the 1-0 victory Group D against the Czech Republic last week.
His lack of playing time came as a surprise to some as Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka was selected for the Czech game before him and named Man of the Game for his performance.
Sancho has had to be patient and it is unlikely that he will start against Germany at Wembley Stadium – but his knowledge of playing with and against a large number of their teams could help the Three Lions trying to find a way to win.
« In a way, yes, because he played a lot of football against them, more than the rest of us, » said Rashford when asked if Sancho was Gareth before the Germany game Could be Southgate’s most valuable asset.
« I’m sure he knows the players, their characteristics, strengths and weaknesses and is definitely someone who can take advantage of them.
» If one thing doesn’t quite work, we have a great opportunity to change things and adapt in the game.
“Adaptability is one of the greatest skills in football and it often happens that you have to change or optimize something in a game in order to harm your opponents.
