Euro 2020: Jadon Sancho ‘starts for England’, but what does Manchester United target’s tattoo say?

There's a touching story behind his ink

Jadon Sancho will make his first start in the England line up during Euro 2020 this evening, according to reports.

The highly-rated winger is expected to face Ukraine from the off after making only one substitute appearance so far.

He previously came on in the 84th minute against the Czech Republic after manager Gareth Southgate swapped him in for Bukayo Saka. Sancho is preferred over Arsenal favourite Saka as it is believed he has picked up a knock.
