Speaking ahead of England’s upcoming World Cup qualifying fixtures, manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed that Manchester United attacker Jadon Sancho is suffering from a slight injury.
The Three Lions are scheduled to face Hungary (Sept 2), Andorra (Sept 5) and Poland (Sept 8) in what will be their first three World Cup group stage qualifying matches.
Sancho, 21, joined the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer in a deal worth a whopping £73m, as per Sky Sports News.
Last weekend saw the young English attacker awarded his starting club debut during United’s narrow 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
However, now currently away on international duty, the United faithful will not be pleased to hear that their young star has picked up, what has been described by BBC reporter Simon Peach, as a ‘small knock’.
