Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund, is committed to making a full debut in England against the USA Football


Jadon Sancho is expected to start for the US against the US on Thursday, with Gareth Southgate considering selecting a completely different teams to the friendly match and the League of Nations against Croatia by three days later.

The English manager is aware that there are only 66 hours between the games, at Wembley, and he is likely to make full use of all options when choosing a side for both games. Sancho became a place in the endless game with Croatia in Rijeka last month and the 19-year-old has started in Borussia Dortmund in the weeks since, scoring four goals in the Bundesliga and the Champions League.

That is probably going to start against the United States, when Wayne Rooney gets last last in the English shirt to win her 120th farewell cap. Harry Kane is not expected to start, and Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling could also sit out of the game with one eye on Croatia.

The first caps for Bournemouth, Callum Wilson and half-half Lewis Brighton, are likely to be against the side in 23 in the world, although Southgate has key decisions to do over its field center. Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard were absent due to injury for the 3-2 victory in Spain, with Jordan Henderson being stopped. That trio was the star strangers who finished the fourth in the World Cup.

Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Ross Barkley had all the prints in Seville in Southgate refurbished 4-3-3 and would be disappointed to step down for a Sunday competitive game. England will either compete to win their group, or not be dismissed, depending on the outcome of the Spanish game in Zagreb on Thursday.

Kieran Trippier has returned to Tottenham for a treatment of a graze injury held at Crystal Palace on Saturday. He follows Danny Welbeck pulling back from the 28-man party.
