World Cup qualifier: English forward Jadon Sancho pulled out of England squad following injury

Jadon Sancho will not be seen playing in the World Cup qualifiers matches with his England teammates. The injury in training has caused Sancho to withdraw his name from the squad.

The English and Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho has officially withdrawn his name from the England squad for some of the opening World Cup qualifier matches that are scheduled to be held this and the next week. The 21-year-old sustained an injury in the training as coach Gareth Southgate said on Wednesday. Jadon had a small niggle as informed by England’s manager because of which he didn’t feature in their previous game against Hungary in England’s opening game of the World Cup qualifier.

Jadon Sancho has recently signed for his dream Premier club Manchester United and he also made his full debut for the club against Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend. The English forward was been named in the England playing squad by Southgate (England’s manager) for the opening qualifier games. Jadon left for international duty along with his club and country teammates which include central defender Harry Maguire, left-back Luke Shaw who is in great form recently, and Jesse Lingard.

The 21-year-old winger while training with the squad got a small knock and now the England manager Gareth Southgate thinks he will not be fit for their next match which is on Sunday, 5th September against Andorra at 9:30 pm (IST). However, this injury to Man United’s new signing is concerning for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manchester United manager) as he wants the forward to start their next game which is against Newcastle.
