Jadon Sancho Exclusive: Trent Alexander-Arnold And Raheem Sterling Are Worst FIFA Players In England Team

Jadon Sancho Exclusive: Trent Alexander-Arnold And Raheem Sterling Are Worst FIFA Players In England Team

Raheem Sterling and Trent Alexander-Arnold are the two worst FIFA players in the England squad, according to Jadon Sancho.

The Borussia Dortmund assist king, 19, considers himself one of the best in both his club and country dressing rooms.

And Sancho, who is the wonderkid with the most potential on FIFA 20's career mode, had no problem in naming those he thinks are bottom of the pack.

Speaking to SPORTbible at the FIFA 20 world premiere, Sancho said: "At England I've got two players - Raheem Sterling and Trent Alexander-Arnold - very bad players.

"And Dortmund I would say Achraf Hakimi and Paco Alcacer. Obviously I'm at the top."

The 19-year old also called out Sterling out for his rage quit last year when the two went-to-head on FIFA while on national team duty.

Sancho recalled playing with Juventus and beating his England team-mate Sterling 3-1 - and the Manchester City forward did not take it well.

"He [Sterling] got upset, went to his room and threw his toys out of the pram," Sancho joked. "A bit childish."

Despite the storming out, however, Sancho and Sterling have formed a bond on and off the pitch.

Sterling assisted Sancho's first goal for his country in the thrilling 5-3 win over Kosovo at St Mary's earlier this month to fulfill his childhood dream.

Sancho explained: "It was a great feeling as you could see from the celebration, I screamed! I'm just happy with the first and hopefully there will be many more.

"It was emotional because I did it for a lot of family members that couldn't be here today.

"When I was at City, he (Sterling) looked after me when I came into the first-team and especially with us both being from London, we have a special connection. Sometimes we meet up in our free time when he's in London and I'm in London. He's like a big brother to me.

"Every day is a blessing and every time I step onto the pitch is a dream come true.

"I was always confident but you never know when that opportunity is going to come. It was just about being patient and keep working hard."

Sancho, who grew up idolising and playing with the one and only Ronaldinho on FIFA, now has the privilege of playing with himself on the game.

And this year the former Watford and Manchester City academy player is able to relive his days nutmegging players in south London cages thanks to the introduction of VOLTA football.

Sancho said: "I feel like street football has helped me a lot and I'm happy that they have brought it back because they used to do FIFA Street.

"For me personally I just like to show what I have and just try and do everything for my team - if it does include a nutmeg then it includes a nutmeg. I'm more than happy to get the crowd cheering, get excited and stand on their feet."

After his sensational campaign Sancho has been bumped up 12 ratings to 84 this year and is one of the most improved players on the game.

But he's still not happy with EA Sports having only been given 77 for passing.

"I feel like FIFA got it wrong this year but everyone makes mistakes," Sancho reflected.

"FIFA does get updated so hopefully my rating does go up, then I'll be happy.

"It shows that you're doing well in your football but it's about real life personally because it's just a game. If someone was rated around 73 they shouldn't take it too personal but it is always nice to get a good rating on FIFA.

"It's a massive thing for me. Growing up playing FIFA, I liked to play with Ronaldinho and these kind of players so just being part of it is a great achievement for myself."
