After a significant spell of speculation, Gareth Southgate finally pulled the trigger on bringing Jadon Sancho into the senior England team, after an impressive start to the season with Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho, 18, has long been one of the most coveted young players in the England youth set-up, having played a key role in the U-17 World Cup winning side of 2017, but was called back early after Dortmund intended to bring him into their first team.
In 368 minutes of first team football this season, Sancho has scored one goal and provided seven assists for his teammates, having hit the ground running under Lucien Favre. Favre saw his potential immediately, saying back in July: "Jadon is a very good player. I saw that right away in the first training session," Favre told ESPN.
"He's got enormous potential, but it'll need time for him to improve and there are some corrections to be made about his style."
