Jadon Sancho & Jack Grealish Set To Miss Euro 2020 Thanks To Jesse Lingard's Incredible Form

Jesse Lingard has emerged as a wildcard option for England's Euro 2020 squad - with Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish tipped to potentially miss out.

The 28-year-old is currently on loan at West Ham from Manchester United and has scored five goals in seven games for the Hammers.

He has been involved in Gareth Southgate's latest squad and featured in all three wins over San Marino, Albania and Poland.

The Sun have revealed Southgate has been so impressed with Lingard's form and attitude, he's trying to find room for the midfielder.

It could see Sancho and Grealish, who missed the international break through injury, axed in a controversial call.

Southgate is already in the process of deciding his squad for the tournament and admits he's already spoken to members of the squad.

The 50-year-old said: "I've spoken to quite a few so that they know exactly where they sit.

"You've got to manage expectations about what they might need to do between now and the end of the season.

"And, of course, everybody is so close. It's not something anybody sees outside the camp, but when you've got players training at the right level every day, encouraging each other through those sessions, socially getting on well.

"It's not all about that social part, but the part where you accept being on the bench, accept playing your part and not playing the number of minutes.

"That is critical and was important to us getting nine points."

Sancho has been a regular for England since 2018 while Grealish broke into the squad at the backend of last year.

According to ESPN, he has two conditions on returning to the fold under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

One of those is based on game time, having slipped down the pecking order after the arrival of Bruno Fernandes.

The second is a new contract with his current deal set to expire in 2022.
