Watch: Could Jadon Sancho be England’s Neymar?

Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho has just become the first player born in the 21st century to be called up to the England senior squad, but could he really be England’s answer to Neymar?

The stats certainly suggest his call up should come as little surprise with the 18-year-old bagging more assists than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues so far this season.

As for the Neymar comparisons, Sancho possesses the same flair for the eccentric as the Brazilian but it’s that unpredictability that is simultaneously drawing flattering likenesses and keeping him actually starting matches.
