Jadon Sancho explains his feelings after an impressive performance at the quarter-final.
, who helped his side reach the Euro 2020 semi-finals, has talked about the match insisting that he is proud after his first start at the national team squad.
“It was hard to get to sleep,”
“It was a great feeling — the lads are still buzzing. Happy to be a part of it. Everyone is over the moon because we know how much it means to the fans.
“It’s something that I was dreaming of as a kid, especially putting on the shirt for my family. It’s a really big honor for me. I class myself as lucky, and to be representing England at a major tournament is just a dream come true. I’m just thankful, every opportunity I get."
Jadon Sancho started his career by playing in the cages in south London, and now that he has become a professional player playing at the highest level, he says that his mentality hasn’t changed.
“I’ve never changed,”
said Sancho, who has 21 England caps
. “In the cages, it was all about nutmegging, [skilling] people up, and just taking them on. When I have a one-v-one, I’ve always tried to do the things that I used to do in the cages, and try to perfect it in training.”
He has also advised players who are playing in the cages to keep working hard and never give up.
“Keep doing what you’re doing in the cages and try to implement it into the game,"
"There could be a situation where there’s three men around you and then you do a mad skill to just beat all three. It definitely does work, the tight cage skills. Definitely don’t lose it.”
