Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho has said he hoped Arsenal player Bukayo Saka will play for England.
Saka is eligible to play for either England or Nigeria but the youngster is still considering his options.
Sancho also expressed disappointment in the cancellation of the Euro2020.
“Nah I was gutted. Obviously I’ve been doing my thing this season and I was ready to go,” Sancho told SoccerBible.
The England international believes it is for the best as coach Gareth Southgate could use the opportunity to scout for talented players.
“I don’t mind it being pushed back though. I feel like the England squad has a lot of players who are interesting at the moment. It’s going to be interesting to see who makes the squad.
“The players we have now are great and the young players that are coming up now like Bukayo Saka, Mason Greenwood – these guys are talented. It’s interesting to see what they’re doing week in, week out.
“They’re doing a madness so it’s going to be a very tough decision for Gareth Southgate to make.
“Again it’s healthy competition and you’ve just got to do your thing and everyone is going to be doing their best. It’s exciting to see.”
