Former England manager Kevin Keegan has spoken out against the talent in the England national team set up, revealing only a handful of players excite him sporadically.
He said, as quoted by the Times: “I wouldn’t say any of the England players really excite me. Dele Alli sometimes. He does things.
Speaking at the Cheltenham Literary Festival, Keegan further lamented England's lack of Hazard-like quality.
Keegan may have a point - England don't quite have a player on Eden Hazard's level in terms of creativity - but his words do seem a little harsh when you consider how well England did in the World Cup this year.
And when you add into the equation the new talent Gareth Southgate has included in the most recent Three Lions squad, it seems Keegan ought to be a bit more optimistic.
In particular, Sancho has been in incredible form this season playing for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. In the German top division, Sancho has six assists to his name and one goal in just 214 minutes of game time.

If Sancho can translate that sort of form onto the international stage, Keegan might yet find true excitement in the shape of a current England player.
