JADON SANCHO went through an emotional rollercoaster in England’s Euro 2020 final loss against Italy in July.
Sancho’s European campaign had been a quiet one and he had only featured in two of England’s matches before the finale.
But the 21-year-old got his chance to shine when England’s head huncho Gareth Southgate called on him to take a penalty in the hopes of sinking the Italian’s.
However, it wasn’t to be and Sancho’s Euro dreams quickly turned to a nightmare after he agonisingly missed his penalty.
And to make matters worse, the new Man United signing fell victim to racial abuse on social media for his miss, along with fellow black stars Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka who done the same.
When UMMM show presenter Harry Pinero asked the midfielder how he felt about the Euro’s, Sancho reflected: “It was big stage for me, it was my first major tournament with my national team.

“But also one biggest downs, obviously missing that penalty and then receiving the racial abuse.”
Luckily the South Londoner was able to bounce back from the career low with the support of the rest of the England squad.
And despite the abuse from some of the England supporters, it was still an incredible feeling for Sancho to represent his country and put on for those who did support his efforts.
Sancho added: “But the team was fantastic over the month we were there and it was a great feeling playing in front of our home crowd.
“And obviously the man dem like you (pointing at Pinero).”
