English forward Jadon Sancho will miss England’s clash against Hungary in their opening game of the World Cup qualifier on Thursday night. The 21-year old picked up a little knock in the training as informed by the England national football team manager Gareth Southgate on Wednesday. After this injury news, the English player was doubtful to feature in their opening game of the World Cup qualifiers.
Jadon Sancho joined the Premier League club Manchester United this summer after his move was disrupted last season. The 21-year-old also made his full debut for the club last weekend against Wolverhampton Wanderers along with Man United’s another new signing Raphael Varane who joined the club after leaving the La Liga giants Real Madrid. Jadon was named in the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers and left along with his club teammates Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and Jesse Lingard after their Sunday’s clash. While he was training with the squad he sustained a small knock as told by the England manager Southgate on Wednesday in an interview.
England’s first game in this World Cup qualifier match is going to be against Hungary who is hopeful of getting their qualification too in the Qatar World Cup 2022. The game is scheduled to be played on Thursday night in Budapest. Even though Sancho will miss this opening game but will remain with the squad.
