Rio Ferdinand has ordered Machester United target Jadon Sancho to recreate his form at the European Championships.
The youngster started for England’s last friendly before Euro 2020 begins. He was replaced after 65 minutes, struggling to impress during the clash.
However, Ferdinand is desperate to see the Red Devils’ long-term target to replicate his Borussia Dortmund levels at the national stage.
“This is what I want to see in an England shirt: Jadon Sancho,” he said.
“Jadon Sancho at Borussia Dortmund, when they need a moment, obviously (Erling) Haaland is on the end of things, but when they want someone to open the game up, they look at Sancho.
“I want to see that Sancho for England.
“Is it the team? Is it the shape of the team and the restrictions that’s holding him back from bringing out the same form?
“Or, is it just that he hasn’t become accustomed to international football yet?”
