Manchester United's Marcus Rashford sent home from England duty with injury

John Stones has failed to shake off a groin injury

"I recognize now that my attempt to show support for my teammates at the time could be negatively interpreted".

The Borussia Dortmund teenager Jadon Sancho could make his first competitive start for England in the Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic on Friday after Marcus Rashford withdrew with injury, the sixth player from Gareth Southgate's squad to do so.

"While my naive words were not meant to be a political opinion, and do not represent who I am, I sincerely apologise for any offence caused".

"I am aware that a poorly expressed comment I made when I was a junior player has been circulated on social media", the 20-year-old said in a statement on Thursday.

The problem now for Southgate is success will be judged on winning a trophy and we know that's the hardest part at global level.

I won't hesitate to start either of them in the game.

"I have equal respect and love for both England and Ireland and therefore the national team I choose to represent is not a clear-cut, simple selection".

"Callum's fitted in, he looks every inch an England worldwide in training, and I wouldn't hesitate to start him in games".

"If we looked at the likes of [Michael] Owen, [Marcus] Rashford, [Raheem] Sterling, a lot of those attacking players do go in pretty young", he explained.

'First and foremost, it's just pride in doing the job, ' he said. I think we should have a bigger pool because for young kids joining the English academies, there should be the dream of being a professional player.

The Chelsea prospect, 18, was this week promoted to the senior squad for the games against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

"I can't wait for clubs to pick players 50, 100 times - that's not the landscape we're operating in".

"Expectation will change and things like that, but that is good for us, as long as we know what we want to do and achieve as a group that will be really important", he said.

"I think people will recognise their own experiences at 15, 16 and that they're not mature [at that age]".

"You're in conversations with friends that, you can get giddy and you can say things that maybe you don't even know enough about or you don't understand the context. Our fans or our public will understand that fact".
