The kids are alright
International football is usually the domain of established stars, but this international break has turned that on its head.
International bosses the world over have turned to the youngsters to drive their teams forward.
England benefitted from Jadon Sancho’s exuberance, Luka Jovic was a star for Serbia while Germany defeated the Netherlands thanks to Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry.
Italy, meanwhile, benefitted from Moise Kean’s excellence and Lucas Paqueta made a flying start to his Brazil career. It seems the current crop of talented youngsters all have bright futures ahead of them.
