'Man Utd rumours have not affected form'

The Premier League is now on ice as global action takes centre stage, with England taking on the Republic of Ireland in a friendly before Nations League clashes with Belgium and Iceland.

Sancho has so far enjoyed a fine career in Germany since moving from Manchester City in 2017.

Jadon Sancho says he has not been affected by a move to Manchester United not going ahead this summer.

But the 20-year-old does not believe the persistent rumours over his future have led to his slow start to the current campaign.

"It's something I'm sure he will have on his mind and he's just got to keep playing like he's playing because he's playing really well at the moment".

"I'm just happy to be starting for England".

Peru violence: Pressure mounts on President Merino after two die in protests
Peru has the world's highest per-capita COVID-19 mortality rate and has seen one of Latin America's worst economic contractions. Merino assumed the presidency on November 10 after Vizcarra was removed by Congress amid allegations of corruption.

Sancho, who made his England debut in 2018, said he does not feel burdened by a weight of expectation after an impressive start to his global career.

"He just asked me how the (Villa) game was, how I was feeling about it", Saka told beIN Sports.

Several reasons have been mentioned as to why the Red Devils failed to bring in the England global winger, including the fee and the bad approach they made to the German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund. "Every time I play I try to do my best, luckily enough I got the goal and I'm happy to help the team once again". Scoring goals is particularly hard for him: While he has already contributed four assists in nine competitive games for BVB, he only scored in the cup game against MSV Duisburg (5-0) and in the second group game of the Champions League against Zenit St. Petersburg (2: 0).

Sancho billed Jack Grealish, who also caught the eye when starting for England, as a "great player" and considers Dortmund team-mate Jude Bellingham to be fully deserving of the senior global bow that has come his way at 17 years of age.

"At Dortmund he gives 110 per cent, his performances are world class. I'm happy for him".
