Walcott has not played for England since November 2016 and confirmed he did not speak to manager Gareth Southgate before his squad was announced last week.
Playing infront of such imposing and vast crowds at Dortmund's mightily impressive Westfalenstadion, Sancho has shown real maturity for such a young man, leading Everton forward Walcott to believe that the youngster has the ability to cope with the demands on global football. Obviously they were delighted for me and I couldn't stop smiling the whole day, Sancho told Sky Sports during his first England press conference. The culture is different.
While the game at Stadion HNK Rijeka was played in an empty ground due to a UEFA sanction against the hosts, a group of England fans managed to find a vantage point on a hillside to watch proceedings. The food's alright. Schnitzel [meat, often fried in breadcrumbs]. that's really nice.
"I'm happy to be a part of Dortmund". 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. It's a noisy stadium.
"I think it's vital [to be playing] because not everyone wants to play U23s".
'Everyone feels they're ready for the next step.
Sancho left City for Germany in a £8 million deal but City were keen to ensure that they put themselves at the front of the queue should they wish to re-sign him in the future. "I'm playing for my country".
"Now, because of the loan system and how hard it is to break into a Premier League side, we're seeing more and more young players making a football decision to play overseas, and that's fantastic for our game because they're going to come back with different things they've been taught". His confidence in taking on players, whether there are four or five guys around him.
Even as a kid he always loved football, and he invariably wanted to play for a big premier league team. 'That's why you're here.
Jadon Sancho is one of the most versatile new upcoming talents in football.
"Not everyone is comfortable moving from home". By doing that he has also sent out a wider message, namely he is watching all English players, including those who are overseas.
"I believe in myself, so moving to Germany didn't faze me".
"When you see him he's good on the dribble, when he's on the dribble he sees the pass".
But it looks like Sancho would only leave for a fortune and Levy would have to trump any previous Spurs deal by getting out the cheque book to spend big.
