The England International was brilliant with his control which made it look like an offside before Ben Chilwell scored the goal.

The Video Assistant Referee and the center Referee were right to allow the goal to stand because Sancho was in an onside before before assisting Ben Chilwell with the goal.

England dominated the game right from the 17th minutes and a beautiful team work performance created Bukayo Saka's goal in the 40th minutes of the game.

England came back into the second half of the game with a better game plan before Tammy Abraham and Sancho's brilliant combination provided the 3rd goal of the match. The Manchester United player was impressive in the game with two assists.

Ward Prawse and Jack Grealish completed the score line in the last 15 minutes of the game. With the 5-0 win over Andorra, England are currently leading the group with 19 points after 7 games.
