Sancho backed to shine for England by former teen star Walcott

Jadon Sancho celebrates with his Borussia Dortmund team-mates

Sancho earned a senior call-up at global level this month following a stunning start to the season, during which the 18-year-old chalked up a goal and a whopping six assists in seven Bundesliga matches.

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.

"It would be a dream come true to play".

Spurs were reportedly keen on signing the winger when he was at Manchester City as part of a deal for Kyle Walker and look set to reignite their interest after missing out.

Sancho's Bundesliga performances have seen a £100million price tag put on him but he joked: 'That's mad!

I was at training when I first got the call-up and straight away I called my parents. He livened things up for England and showed no fear despite his young age.

An exciting prospect could now be handed his England debut in Nations League clashes with Croatia and Spain, with Walcott tipping him to make an immediate impact. I'm just grateful [Southgate] has seen my progress in the Bundesliga.

Reaching the World Cup semi-finals was no mean feat, irrespective of whether people think England had a so-called "easy" run, and it was borne largely out of Southgate's insistence on picking players in form rather than those who have more caps in the cupboard and who are being selected based on historic success with club and/or country.

"That won't faze me at all", he said.

His club is said to have slapped a £100 million (R1.9 billion) price tag on their new superstar in the making, having only recently extending his contract until 2022. I learned so much in Holland.

Sancho, who left Manchester City's youth academy for the Bundesliga side previous year, has had a meteoric rise to stardom, which was propelled to a new level after his call-up to England's senior squad. Not everyone is comfortable moving from home. I don't know what to say'.

"One hundred per cent, coming in before the World Cup, training for four days, it made me hungrier to get into the squad", he added.

"I've played with Mason Mount as well, so it gives you a bit more of an incentive that you can actually do it".

"When you see him he's good on the dribble, when he's on the dribble he sees the pass".
