Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho has been using his free time to step up his fitness, after being overlooked by Gareth Southgate for the England World Cup squad.
The young attacker is currently in the Netherlands where he is training alone, as England embarks on another attempt to win a first World Cup since 1966.
As far as the England squad is concerned, Sancho was a crucial part of the team during the Euro 2020, but has featured for the national side just once since that tournament.
Notably, he is yet to make an appearance for England in 2022, due to a combination of injuries and a spectacular dip in form at Man United.

Since signing for the Red Devils from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, Sancho has just eight goals and four assist in 52 games, a run of form considered not good enough by Southgate.
Meanwhile, the likes of Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Manchester City duo Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are proving to be too difficult for Sancho to unseat in the England squad, because of their importance and form for their respective clubs.
Sancho working with Dutch coaches
Despite his setbacks, Sancho is determined to make a comeback, albeit through his club performances.
The Sun reports that the winger has been training with some expert Dutch coaches, who were a personal recommendation from his club boss Erik ten Hag.
He has since been spotted training alone at Rosmalen in the Netherlands.

One thing the Man United player might also need to work on is his time management skills, as some scathing reports in the recent past suggest he was snubbed from the England squad due to his inefficiency in keeping to schedules.
Man United interested in Depay
Elsewhere, Sports Brief also reported on Manchester United’s interest Memphis Depay, with the club hoping to sign the Dutch star in January.
The Red Devils are still assessing their options as they continue their search for Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement, after the 37-year-old had his contract terminated by mutual consent.
Depay is no stranger to United fans, as he had an initial first spell at Old Trafford after signing from PSV Eindhoven as a young prospect back in 2015.
