Foden may question future after Sancho England call-up – Honigstein

Journalist Rafa Honigstein says Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden will be wondering what might have been following Gareth Southgate’s decision to name Jadon Sancho in the latest England squad.

Sancho made the decision to leave Manchester City last summer in search of regular first-team football at Borussia Dortmund.

The 18-year-old has assisted in five league goals for Dortmund this season as he has helped them top the Bundesliga after six games.

Speaking to the BBC Euro Leagues Football Show, Honigstein says Sancho’s call-up may see young English talent like Foden, 18, choose to put “their ego aside” and move abroad in pursuit of regular game time.
