“Sancho is huge in Germany because of what he has done with Borussia Dortmund, and is seen as a big star in the Bundesliga – he is only 21 but he has been spectacular for the past few seasons.
“Another young England player at Dortmund, Jude Bellingham, is rated very highly too, but he is a different kind of player.
“What makes [Sancho] such a special talent is his technical capability at a very fast pace, and he is fearless – he just goes at people. I love watching him because, when he gets the ball, he excites the fans.
“Of course people who watch him for Dortmund expected him to get more of a chance at this tournament – he has had only six minutes of action so far, as a substitute against the Czech Republic – but the same discussion you are having about fitting England’s young talent in your team, we are having about Germany’s emerging players too.”
