Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes Jadon Sancho should have been called up to the England squad ahead of Jack Grealish.

Sancho has seen a lot more football under Erik ten Hag this season after a shaky first campaign following his move from Borussia Dortmund.

The 22-year-old got his third goal of the season in United's 2-0 win over Sheriff in the Europa League, just a few hours after he was left out of the England squad.

Scholes, however, did not agree with Gareth Southgate leaving out the winger for the Nations League games against Italy and Germany.

“Gareth’s picked his players for a reason, possibly from previous squads.

“I think he [Jadon Sancho] probably deserves to be in over Jack Grealish at the minute.”

“He [Sancho] scored a good goal against Liverpool and showed signs tonight [against FC Sheriff]. He’s better when he’s coming inside and linking play.”

Grealish is yet to register a goal or an assist in five matches across all competitions for the English champions this season.
