Jadon Sancho’s season is beginning to explode into life. The Borussia Dortmund winger has scored against Paderborn this evening.
Sancho started slowly this campaign. It’s unclear whether the whirlwind of last season and the summer got to him, or perhaps it was as a result of living abroad while travel restrictions were in place and it was not as easy to visit his family.
In reality, we have all been affected in different ways by this pandemic, and a young man living in a different country is well within his rights to have a drop in his performance level at work, regardless of what industry he’s in.
He is slowly getting back to his very best, though, with a superb breakaway goal against Paderborn this evening being the latest evidence of that. Watch how he broke free of the defensive live, beat the goalkeeper and found the back of the net.

Gareth Southgate will be hoping this form carries on until the summer’s European Championships!
