Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho provided two assists for England in their 5-0 win over Andorra yesterday evening.
The England international was handed a start by manager Gareth Southgate and he repaid his faith by putting in a top drawer performance in the World Cup qualifier.
Supporters on Twitter praised Sancho for his display and they are hopeful that the game will do wonders for his confidence after a difficult start to life with United:

Sancho really needed that match last night. Having not scored or contributed an assist in nine matches since his £73m move from Borussia Dortmund, the 21-year-old would have been delighted to get his season off and running.
It may only have been Andorra, and he will have a much tougher time of things when the Red Devils take on Leicester next weekend, but there were clear signs of improvement, as he beat his man regularly and provided some great deliveries for his teammates.
