Antony "Tells" Jadon Sancho The Only Way To Resurrect His Premier League Career

Brazil faced Cameroon on Friday night, having already qualified for the round of 16 after defeating Serbia and Switzerland in their first two group matches. Coach Tite thought it would be a good idea to rotate his team and give some of the players he had used sparingly in the first two games of the tournament a chance to prove why they deserved to start in the knockout games.

Many players tried to prove their worth, but Antony was one who proved he could start for Brazil at right wing in front of Raphinha, who has yet to shine in Qatar. The Manchester United winger was a nuisance for Cameroonian leftback Nouhou Tolo; by the first 15 minutes, the Cameroonian had already picked up a yellow card. Antony was active; he helped Dani Alves defend; he wasn't afraid to take on defenders; he played with confidence and swagger.

"From minute one until his departure with 15 to go, the star of the show. Weaved in and out from the get-go, making a mockery of Cameroon left back Nouhou Tolo’s defensive skills with his shimmys and rapid footwork. Only thing missing was a goal or an assist," writes the Independent.

Sancho has struggled at Old Trafford, but if he watched that game, he should know what he needs to do to regain Ten Hag's trust. Apart from the fact that he did not score or assist, Antony demonstrated exactly what every winger should be doing, which is why Ten Hag went out of his way to sign him.
