“Sancho over Saka” – loads of fans discuss whether £73m star should start Euro 2020 final

In the build-up to this evening’s Euro 2020 final, the main talking point will once again be Gareth Southgate’s team selection. The England manager has been criticized for his starting eleven’s but will feel that choices have been justified by entry to the final.

Sancho, who is set to join Manchester United after the final against Italy, dominated headlines last month when he was restricted to just six minutes of action in the group phase.

Instead, it was Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka and Man City midfielder Phil Foden who were given the nod ahead of the 21-year-old, sparking outrage from supporters.

Saka has impressed at the tournament, but Sancho’s performance against Ukraine in the quarter-final has led to some debate over who should be starting England’s biggest game in 55 years.

Manchester United announced earlier this month that an agreement had been reached with Borussia Dortmund over Jadon Sancho’s transfer, with completion expected after his involvement in the tournament.

The German club are set to receive a whopping £73m for the sale for their star winger, a dramatic decrease from their infamous £108m asking price less than 12 months ago.
