Roy Keane claims Jadon Sancho needs to show more than ‘nice details’ to become an English starter as he criticizes the Man United target’s output in the final third
Roy Keane has claimed that Jadon Sancho will need to improve on his final product to force his way into the England squad this summer.
The Borussia Dortmund winger, who is strongly linked with a move to Manchester United, was included in England’s 26-man squad for Euro 2020 and hopes to make his mark on the international stage.
But it remains to be seen whether the 21-year-old will appear for England from the start amid a wealth of options available to Gareth Southgate.

He had the chance to shine in England’s final warm-up game against Romania on Sunday but struggled to inspire his side as they failed to score during his 64-minute play, although he did hit the bar with a curling attempt.
And former United captain Keane says Sancho, along with Marcus Rashford and Jack Grealish, must improve his performance if he is to beat Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling for a starting spot.
“A big question mark for any young player is his end product,” Keane . said ITV.
“He showed some nice things, but needs to be something more to force his way into the England team.

“If he’s in a broad position, his job is to get past people. He needs to do a little more—same for Grealish, same for Rashford.”
Sancho has three England goals and five assists in his 19 caps to date, but has a proven track record at club level for Dortmund.
He has an impressive 50 goals and 64 assists in 157 appearances for Dortmund, where he still scored 16 goals this season, despite a relatively quiet campaign for his standards.
