|Jadon Sancho can deal with England pressure, says Theo Walcott
| sbobet777 Theo Walcott has backed Jadon Sancho to thrive with England after his shock selection. Borussia Dortmund forward Sancho, 18, has been called up for Nations League games in Croatia on Friday and Spain on Monday, both live on Sky Sports.
He has started just once in the Bundesliga for Dortmund this season but has registered six assists and scored once. Everton's Walcott was just 17 when he was a surprise pick for the 2006 World Cup - although he did not play in Germany - having not made a senior appearance for Arsenal at the time
And, after his experience, the forward believes Sancho can perform. "He can deal with it, he's been in the Dortmund dressing room, he's played at their stadium which is fantastic. He won't be fazed at all," said Walcott, who has 47 England caps. sbobet777 "It's completely different now, there are a lot of young players in that group. When I came through there was Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard - completely established players in the team - so it's a different environment I would say.
"Of course it's still daunting but when you get down on the field and play football that's all you want to do, you just want to play, it doesn't matter who it's for. "You just want to go out there and do your best and I'm sure everyone will. "The young players with England is fantastic to see and they've just got to take their chances. sbobet777 Good luck to them all."
