Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount named in England squad

Sancho has impressed from the bench for Dortmund this season

Since moving to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City, Jadon Sancho has been impressive as the youngster bagged one goal and eight assists for the Bundesliga giants so far this season.

"He's dealing with that and excelling", the England manager said.

With Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard injured and Adam Lallana and Ruben Loftus-Cheek making their way back to fitness, Southgate has turned to youth. "They're confident players, we'd like to work with them now so that they get an understanding of how we work and we get a closer look at them". "I'm always trying to find that balance, the messaging has to be correct, but it's good for their development to see how they train with us".

Mount has created more chances than any other player in the League Championship and scored for England's under-21 team last month.

When asked about the inclusion of the young trio of Mount, Sancho and Maddison, Southgate said: I think it's aligned to what we have done in the last 18 months really. He played a year ago on loan at Vitesse [Arnhem] and has had another season of men's football and created more chances than any other player in the league. "This contract extension is the result of his powerful performances", Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc told the club's official homepage.

Southgate has made a strong impact since taking over from the sacked Sam Allardyce in 2016, evidenced by England's performances at Russian Federation 2018, when the Three Lions reached its first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

"He's been fearless enough to go overseas and play", Southgate said.

"He is a player that excites us a lot, he is adapting to a big football club and he has had two starts in the Champions League this year".

One of England's weak points in recent years, including at the World Cup, was a lack of creativity and vision in midfield.

England kicked-off their UEFA Nation League campaign to a bad start as Southgate's men lost at home to Spain. Two of them have returned to the group after injury: Watford's Nathaniel Chalobah and Tottenham's Harry Winks.

There are six uncapped players in total in boss Gareth Southgate's 25-man squad, which has an average age of 23.9.

Derby midfielder Mount, 19, was watched by Southgate during their Championship match against Blackburn after impressing on loan from Chelsea. If he sees out his deal, he will be longest-serving England coach since Bobby Robson (1982-90).
