It’s been quite the week for Jadon Sancho.

The winger followed up signing for Manchester United with his first start for England in the Euro 2020 quarter-final in Rome.

And Sancho grabbed the opportunity with both hands as he helped his country book a place in the semi-final.

He didn’t get on the scoresheet in the 4-0 rout but can be more than happy with his performance as he was lively throughout and gives Gareth Southgate food for thought against Denmark.

Here’s how the Man United new boy fared on the night as we breakdown his performance during the match.
