Lingard and Sancho may miss England’s service
This week’s international calls may reflect United’s problems this season.
It will be an anxious Wednesday for Jesse Lingard and Jadon Sancho, whose English squad roles are difficult to justify due to lack of playing time and form, in Sancho’s case. Didier Deschamps has called up Anthony Martial as he has not deserved it, but he has not played for United for a month.
Mason Greenwood’s situation with England is peculiar, and he is not expected to be called up either. Fred the Red seems more likely to get on the Old Trafford pitch than Donny van de Beek, cut from Louis van Gaal’s two Dutch teams.
The five are, of course, all on the bench tonight.
