Manchester United signed English singer Jadon Sancho from German club Borussia Dortmund for £73m at the beginning of the season and he has been a flop so far, he has failed to score in seven games for the club but today against Andorra he is in the starting lineup.

Sancho came into Manchester United exam at the same time as Cristiano Ronaldo but the Portuguese have hit the ground running and have scored five goals but Sancho is yet to even register an assist for the club despite his huge transfer fee and salaries of £300,000.

England manager Gareth Southgate said during pre-match conference that the winger doesn't deserve a national team call up because he is failing to score for his club but today he puts him in the starting lineup against Andorra in the 2020 FIFA World Cup qualifier UEFA edition match.

The last time Jadon Sancho played for England was in the European championship final against Italy. He came on as an extra time second half substitute but failed to convert in the penalty shootout alongside Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka which made England lose the finals.
