Erik ten Hag reacts after Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho missed out on England squad

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reacted after both Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho missed out on England squad.

Man United have been on a decent run of form in recent weeks, having won five and lost one in their last six matches in all competitions.

United bounced back to winning ways following a comfortable 2-0 win over Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League, having lost the opener 1-0 to Real Sociedad last week.

Both Sancho and Rashford have played a huge role in United’s decent run of form but Gareth Southgate raised several eyebrows when he snubbed both Manchester United forwards.

Rashford, who has missed United’s last two games due to a muscle injury, confirmed that his absence from the latest England squad is down to his injury, which Southgate confirmed this to be true in an interview with the Three Lions.

Sancho is fit but not included in the England national team squad and Ten Hag said after the win over Sheriff: “It’s not up to me, it’s the manager of England, I can’t be in his seat — they are progressing, they are starting the season well, they will progress even more, I am convinced of that.”

Sancho admitted after his goal against the Moldovian side that it’s unfortunate upon he didn’t get 3a call-up to the England national team.

“Yeah, 100% [make England squad], that is one of the targets,” said the former Dortmund winger. “It’s unfortunate that I didn’t get the call-up, but I have to just keep focusing on myself and keep on working hard, week in and week out, that’s what I’ll do.
