Gareth Southgate to drop Rashford for Sancho

Gareth Southgate will drop Marcus Rashford for Jadon Sancho when England take on Kosovo on Tuesday night

Sancho has been a revelation for Borussia Dortmund since joining and is set to be handed his eighth international appearance against the Kosovans at St Mary's at the expense of United’s Rashford who started Saturday's win over Bulgaria.

Southgate is believed to be eager to try a front three that includes Sancho, Kane and Sterling after the previous one that had Rashford and the other two being seen as the preferred choice in the Euro 2020 qualification.

Finished with a Hattrick

Kane finished with a hat-trick on Saturday and Sterling also got his name on the scoresheet with Rashford having earned one of the penalties which Kane tucked away.

Southgate is set to pick largely the same team who started the 4-0 trouncing of Bulgaria at Wembley and apart from the Rashford/Sancho debate, full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ben Chilwell are the only other two changes he is said to be contemplating.
