Now fans are calling on him to get his chance at Wembley tomorrow following his stunning end to the season at club level.

But the Three Lions boss played down the suggestions by referencing the depth of quality in the wide areas at his disposal.

Southgate, who has started Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling to support Harry Kane in attack so far, said: "We just have so many good attacking players so Raheem, Phil Foden in terms of wide players or players that can play in those areas and come inside.

"We have Raheem, with have Phil Foden, we have Jack Grealish, we have Marcus Rashford, we have Bukayo Saka and we have Jadon.

"They are all very good players so if you weren’t asking me about Jadon, you’d be asking me about one of the others. That’s the nature of it."

Sancho - potentially transferring to Manchester United this summer - did not even make the 23-man matchday squad for the opening game against Croatia.

He was then an unused sub for the 0-0 draw with Scotland on Friday.

Sancho, 21, delivered 16 goals and 20 assists for Dortmund last season from 38 appearances.
