On the 25th March 2000, one of football’s hottest prospects was born.
Now, in 2019 we are witnessing his talents and abilities, as well as watching him break into England’s first team.
Jadon Sancho is today celebrating his 19th birthday. Only five days prior, he was receiving the 2019 NxGN Award as the World’s Best Talent, handed to the best player in the world aged 19 or under.
Just three days ago, he was making his starting debut for the England first team, completing the whole 90 minutes.
