Theo Walcott tips new man Sancho to flourish for England

Jadon Sancho "won't be fazed" by the pressure of representing England, says Theo Walcott, with a former teen star for the Three Lions convinced that the Borussia Dortmund forward will flourish. "I knew about Theo Walcott, who was 16 [when he was called into the 2006 World Cup squad]".

Manchester City face a fight to keep hold of another youngster with Borussia Dortmund eyeing a move for England Under-21 global Phil Foden, claims the Daily Mail.

The teenager is slowly learning German but adaptation to life on the field has been rapid, thanks in no small part to their trust in young players - and advice from the likes of team-mate Pulisic.

RIJEKA, CROATIA - OCTOBER 12: Jadon Sancho of England in action during the UEFA Nations League A group four match between Croatia and England at on October 12, 2018 in Rijeka, Croatia.

Sancho, who was one of the standout figures in the England side that won the U17 World Cup in India, admits it was a wrench leaving England to join Dortmund when he realised he would struggle for game time under Pep Guardiola.

England's Gareth Southgate insists players such as Chelsea's Ross Barkley must take his chance and prove he deserves a spot in the squad in the UEFA Nations League against Croatia and Spain.

Christian Pulisic, the U.S. global and a Dortmund team-mate, has been a big influence: "He is another young guy, and I learn from him".

Meghan Markle's politics might be a problem for the royals
The Mirror has reported that Samantha Markle , 53, was turned away by security after she had "demanded" to see the duchess. However her arrival at palace gates has got her no further in her quest to speak face-to-face with Meghan it would seem.

"It would be a dream come true [to make my debut against Croatia]".

"I can't just go down the road and see my friends, but it's what I want to do long-term: to be a professional footballer You have to do what you have to do to make myself and my family happy".

"I've briefly had a bit of time with him when he was an under-15 in one of our camps, but also I've spent a lot of time talking to other youth coaches to get a good insight into his personality and how he is, just so we were able to help him settle as quickly as possible".

Sancho said: "Obviously moving from home, that was the biggest". If you're ready to play overseas and you believe in yourself, why not?

"I could, yes", he replied when asked if the players could hear the supporters. They could shift Pulisic into the middle in a number 10 role but a move away for the American is looking more likely. "It was a bit hard, but I'm glad the boys brought it home". "That's what he said to me". "I'm playing for my country".

Mount admits that experience only made him more determined to return on a more full-time basis as he looks to become the first outfield Championship player to earn an England cap since Cardiff's Jay Bothroyd in 2010. I think in the long run, this is only going to benefit the England national team.
