Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Jadon Sancho tipped to become the Neymar of England national team


Now his former coach in the England youth set-up has tipped the Bundesliga based starlet to become the unpredictable attacking talisman the Three Lions are desperately in search of.

"Provided he doesn't become restricted he could be our Neymar-type player - in terms of being unpredictable, playing on that left-hand side," Dan Micciche told the Guardian. "Jadon did a lot of his learning on the street through informal play.

"And he's flamboyant, entertaining to watch. But like Neymar, he's effective with it. In most games he'll create something - it's not a beauty contest. He's not on the pitch flicking it over someone's head for the sake of it.

"First of all his mentality is strong - he's gone from Watford to Man City, so moving up north - and then had the mentality to move to another country," he added.

"He's travelled the world with club and country - that takes a lot of discipline, sacrifice. And he's delivered on every stage he's been put on, including now in Germany."
