'It is Sancho that Germany would fear - if he plays' - Klinsmann surprised by England's snub of 'special talent'


A man who helped Germany past England en route to Euro 96 glory expects the Borussia Dortmund star to figure at Wembley on Tuesday

Jadon Sancho has seen just six minutes of action for England at Euro 2020, but it is the Borussia Dortmund winger that Jurgen Klinsmann says "Germany would fear - if he plays" in Tuesday's heavyweight last-16 showdown at Wembley.

Gareth Southgate favoured alternative options in a lacklustre group-stage showing from the Three Lions, with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford getting the nod in wide attacking berths.

That is despite Sancho boasting more goal involvements at club level across the last three seasons than all but one of his current colleagues in a 26-man squad.
