In England News, Jadon Sancho, the Manchester United winger was left out of the squad for the September international break by Gareth Southgate.

Sancho, 22, was a surprise omission after scoring three goals in his last six matches for United.

But as his pals drew 3-3 with Germany in the Nations League at Wembley - the Three Lions' last game before the World Cup - Sancho appeared to have his attention elsewhere.

The 23-cap star, who last featured for his country in October 2021, posted on his Instagram story around the same time as kick-off.

The photo simply showed a TV with the loading screen for the new FIFA 23 game - which is officially released tomorrow.

And plenty of eagle-eyed supporters were quick to laugh at Sancho's choice of Monday evening entertainment.

One said: "Mad that Sancho is sat at home playing Fifa 23 when he should be starting v Germany."

Another wrote: "Sancho playing FIFA 23 instead of watching Southgate's football."

And a third commented: "Sancho would rather play FIFA than watch England play lmao."

Sancho didn't miss much by opting against watching England's first half.

But surely he switched over to catch a thrilling second half.

Club team-mate Harry Maguire clumsily give away a penalty, allowing rival Ilkay Gundogan to slot home the opener before Kai Havertz's belter.

Even if Sancho did want to tune in in time for Harry Kane's penalty and Havertz's late equaliser, though, he might have faced trouble.

That is because Channel 4's online streaming platform and app crashed, leaving thousands of supporters unable to watch their team in action.
