How many caps does Jadon Sancho have for England?

Talented 21-year-old Jadon Sancho will be disappointed to have been ruled out of the England squad as he looks to add to an ever-widening collection of senior caps.

He has figured for Three Lions fold on 22 occasions, with three goals recorded across those outings.

Sancho could not play any part in a 4-0 victory on Thursday over Hungary, with the decision now taken to ruled him from the squad altogether.

That should allow others to impress against Poland and Andorra, with Gareth Southgate anticipating shuffling his pack.

Manchester United will be pleased to know that a player they have to spend £73 million ($101m) worth of trust in should be nurtured when they play host to Newcastle United in a contest that could see Cristiano Ronaldo make his second debut for the club.
