JADON SANCHO has been training in the Netherlands after being left out of England’s World Cup squad.
The winger’s Three Lions team-mates have been basking in the Doha sun and the glory of their 6-2 win over Iran while Sancho was training alone.
Sancho made three appearances at Euro 2020 but has played just once for England since – against Andorra in September 2021.
His form for Manchester United has been below par with just eight goals and four assists in 52 games since he arrived at Old Trafford last year.
That led Southgate to pick Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling ahead of the 22-year-old.
He is working with Dutch coaches recommended by Erik ten Hag and was spotted training with amateur club Rosmalen in the Netherlands.
Sancho worked on his dribbling in an effort to maintain his sharpness ahead of the Premier League’s return on Boxing Day.
Rosmalen wrote on social media: “We hope you had a pleasant training with us! You are always welcome to train with us and have a good time.”
Sancho appears to be focused on getting back to his best and even deleted all of his Instagram posts.
Sancho may have to work on more than just his footballing skills too with reports claiming he missed out on Southgate’s squad because of his timekeeping issues.
Sancho was allegedly late for a team meeting in ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier away to Andorra.
