Jadon Sancho pens emotional response to England penalty miss

Jadon Sancho pens emotional response to England penalty miss

Jadon Sancho has uncovered that his penalty miss for England was by a long shot the most exceedingly terrible feeling he’s had in his career, and furthermore required the individuals who have in this way racially abused players to be considered responsible.

Euro 2020 reached a horrifying resolution on Sunday as England were crushed in the final by Italy at Wembley on penalty.

“I’ve had a couple of days to reflect on Sunday’s final and still feel a mix of emotions,” Sancho wrote on Instagram.

“I would like to say sorry to all my teammates, coaching staff and most of all the fans who I let down. This is by far the worst feeling I’ve felt in my career. It’s hard to even put into words the real feeling, but there were so many positives to take away from this tournament though the defeat will hurt for a long time.

“My first thought before going into any football match is always “How can I help my team?, how am I going to assist? how am I going to score? how am I going to create chances? And that’s exactly what I wanted to do with that penalty, help the team.

“I was ready and confident to take it, these are the moments you dream of as a kid, it is why I play football. These are the pressured situations you want to be under as a footballer. I’ve scored penalties before at club level, I’ve practised them countless times for both club and country so I picked my corner but it just wasn’t meant to be this time.

“We all had the same ambitions and objectives. We wanted to bring the trophy home.

“This has been one of the most enjoyable camps I’ve been part of in my career so far, the togetherness of the team has been unmatched, a real family on and off the pitch.”

Sancho’s soon to be club teammate Marcus Rashford and Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka also missed from the spot and in the aftermath, all three have been subjected to disgusting racist abuse.
