Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho could both be called up to Gareth Southgate’s next England squad.
Mirror The pair will appear in the upcoming Nations League games against Italy and Germany, according to reports.
Rashford and Sancho both missed the penalty shootout in the Euro 2021 final and neither had a particularly good season in their last shock club campaign against Manchester United.
Eric Ten Haag has breathed new life into the pair, who have won their last four domestic matches after a shock start to the season, with Rashford and Sancho both playing key roles.
Both have missed England’s recent dip in form. Southgate’s side have failed to win any of their last four games, scoring just one goal, which makes the respective call-ups all the more believable.
Sancho was last named in the England squad in October 2021, while Rashford was last named in November 2021. If either team fails to make it into the team to come, it will surely mean a farewell waving dreams of the World Cup.
Rashford has scored three goals in his last four club games. A brace against Arsenal and a win against Liverpool underscored the 24-year-old’s ability to find his feet on the big stage.
Rashford played 46 times for England, scoring 12 goals.
Sancho also started the season in impressive fashion. After a slow first season, goals against Liverpool and a winner at Leicester, there are signs the 22-year-old’s career is about to begin.
Sancho has scored three of his 23 goals for the national team, all of his appearances under Gareth Southgate.
While England have good depth in the attacking positions, there isn’t as much to start the season as England.
Now would be the perfect time to get a call, the latest announcement from Southgate’s squad ahead of the World Cup in November.
The inclusions will go a long way in boosting the confidence of the couple, who are finally starting to show the form we know they are capable of; speed and power galore, both with the potential to light up Qatar this winter.
With this weekend’s Premier League games cancelled, the two will battle it out for starts in United’s next game, against Moldovan champions Tiraspol Sheriff, as they bid to finish in the Europa League after losing their opener to Real Sociedad. Back on track.
