The keys to Jadon Sancho's rapid rise
J adon Sancho is one of the most sought after players in world football.
Since leaving Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund, the forward has seen his career and reputation skyrocket.
At the age of 20, the England international has an estimated value of 117 million euros in the transfer market and we've looked at the reasons for his success.
The keys to his game
Sancho is most dangerous when he finds space in between the opposition midfield and defence.
From there, he's able to create chances for his teammates using his close control, dribbling and vision.
He's exceptionally good at making space for his teammates by timing his runs and passes to perfection.
Showing for the ball
During matches, especially when Borussia Dortmund dominate possession, Sancho tends to drop deep to get involved in the play.
His movement off the ball gives his teammates an option to pass to and, from there, he's able to launch attacks.
One of the keys to any good forward's game is the ability to make the right decisions at the right time.
Even at the age of 20, Sancho seems to have mastered this particular skill and is able to choose the right pass when running at opposition defences.
If he's better off going alone, the Englishman will look to take on players and create a chance to score for himself.
Sancho's ability to weigh up his options and choose the right one in a short space of time is testament to how good he is with his feet.
Even if it seems he's already made his decision to play a particular pass, the forward can still pick his head up and play another one.
