Jadon Sancho scored his first goals in an England shirt in his country’s amazing 5-3 win against Kosovo at St Mary’s on Tuesday night, and Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter were clamouring for their club to sign the winger.
The 19-year-old was handed a start by Gareth Southgate on the south coast as he continues to make waves for Borussia Dortmund, with his current record for the Bundesliga giants standing at 17 goals and 27 assists in 60 appearances in all competitions, despite still being in his teenage years.
The wide man brought that form with him for the Three Lions, netting a brace while also providing the cross from which Mergim Vojvoda put through his own net.
While Spurs do have some pace on the flanks in the form of Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min, they have very rarely had the same effect that Sancho and Raheem Sterling did in the opening 45 minutes on Tuesday night.
The former looks to have a massive career ahead of him, and one Tottenham supporter urged his club to “spend the whole summer budget on him”.
Another said they would “prefer him to Dybala”, who of course came close to joining the north London outfit on transfer deadline day before a move eventually broke down.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
I said this for over a year. Sancho should be our number one target. Can’t belive he would be any more expensive than Dybala…
