Jadon Sancho Contract to 2022 in Borussia Dortmund

Jadon Sancho Contract to 2022 in Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund teenager Jadon Sancho was a surprise selection as England manager Gareth Southgate named a 25-man squad on Thursday for this month's Nations League matches away to Croatia and Spain.

England will face Croatia in the UEFA Nations League behind closed doors in Rijeka on October 12, when the World Cup finalists will complete a stadium ban handed down after having a swastika on their pitch in 2015.

The youngster is now leading the charts for the number of assists (five) this season across Europe's top five leagues, managing to provide a goal for a teammate for every 25 minutes of action.

Jordan Henderson has the most caps (46).

Mount's inclusion is one of the most headline-grabbing, given that he is now plying his trade in the Championship, while Sancho is an exciting talent who has been performing exceptionally for Borussia Dortmund.

Only nine have scored for England.

The likes of Ross Barkley and Danny Welbeck are also included after performing well for Chelsea and Arsenal, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek misses out, as does Burnley number one Joe Hart.

Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn stated that England will eventually win the World Cup and European Championships when announcing Southgate's new deal - striking comments, albeit less forceful than former chairman Greg Dyke pinpointing silverware in Qatar. "Every day you drive through the gates of St George's Park and you feel like you're making a difference to English football".

"The job remains an incredible privilege and a true honour".

Discussing his extension, Southgate said: "You can have great relationships with your clubs and I did with mine - I had really special relationships with all three of my clubs - but emotionally the national team has always been the biggest thing for me".

FA chief executive Martin Glenn says England have unfinished business after Russian Federation, and under Southgate's leadership, the target is to cement a place in the top four of FIFA's world rankings.

"With the Premier League as it is we have to be creative, inventive and have to look longer term".

"He has performed remarkably well and has given everyone the belief that England can compete on a world stage again".
