Man Utd stars Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho ‘set for England recalls in final chance to impress before World Cup’
MARCUS RASHFORD and Jadon Sancho are set for England recalls for the upcoming international break, according to reports.
And that will give the pair a final chance to impress Gareth Southgate before the Three Lions boss picks his World Cup squad.
England play Italy and Germany in the Nations League later this month, with the team announced on Thursday.
And according to the Daily Mail, the Manchester United duo have played their way into the squad thanks to their strong starts to the season under Erik ten Hag.
The Englishmen, who have started all six Premier League games, have five goals and two assists between them including winners against Liverpool, Leicester and Arsenal.
Rashford and Sancho were both part of the team that reached the Euro 2020 final last year, with the duo missing penalties in the shootout against Italy.
Rashford, 24, has not played a single minute for his country since the heartbreaking final – although he was called up last November in an injury-hit season.
Sancho, 22, featured in October 2021, last turning out for the Three Lions against Andorra.
Their poor form last season coincided with Manchester United’s struggles and they were subsequently dropped by Southgate.
But England’s torrid Nations League results in the summer – losing 1-0 and 4-0 to Hungary – means there are likely to be major changes for the September fixtures.
The Three Lions play away in Rome on September 23 and then host Germany at Wembley three days later at risk of finishing bottom of the Nations League group.
These are the last two matches before England begin their World Cup campaign against Iran on November 21.
Eric Dier could also earn a recall for the September matches while Ivan Toney has made a strong case to be included thanks to his red-hot form for Brentford.
