Conor Coady has spoken about how hard it is training against England’s forwards at Euro 2020.

He told the official England podcast that Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford keep nutmegging him in training.

England have an array of attacking talent, to the extent that Sancho hasn’t played a single minute of the tournament so far.

Rashford has been limited to substitute appearances in both games so far but he and Sancho could end up being Manchester United teammates next season.

“I’ll be honest, I’m a sucker for getting megged when I come here – like you wouldn’t believe,” he said, when asked who is the hardest England player to come up against in training.

“Like you wouldn’t believe… (Jadon) Sancho has done me a few times in the boxes. I’d probably say him.

 

“Rashy (Marcus Rashford) has done me a few times – done me today if I’m being honest. Those two are really, really sharp.

“The amount of talent that’s here is incredible and it’s really, really tough training against them every day. World class players, top, top players with an incredible future in the game ahead of them.”

International experience will help Coady

Coady of course trains around top players at Wolves but working with Champions League stars at international level will only help him.

It’s a classic sign of his humility that he freely admits getting nutmegged by some of the trickier members of the squad.

When he comes back to Wolves, the experience will stand him in good stead to anchor the Bruno Lage era at Molineux.
