Watch: England winger Jadon Sancho teases defenders with mazy dribble


Jadon Sancho made the most of his first start of Euro 2020 by teasing Ukraine’s defence with a mazy first-half dribble.

Sancho, who is on the verge of joining Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund, was thrown into the line-up by Gareth Southgate for Saturday’s quarter-final in Rome.

And the 21-year-old made a big impression as England took the game to their eastern European opponents.

As the first-half entered injury-time, Sancho excited the crowd in the Stadio Olimpico by embarking upon a slaloming dribble.

Sancho wriggled through three Ukraine defenders before West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko clipped his heels.

To his credit, Sancho continued on his run before eventually coming to a standstill.

After a protracted transfer saga, United fans will be incredibly excited by Sancho’s display and the promise of more moments to come.
