Manchester United's season has taken an unexpected turn, with new leaders within the squad, alternating roles in what is a season of building the foundations of a winning team, after failing to qualify for the Champions League, and failing to convince their fans last season.

However, the situation at Old Trafford has positives, as players who were on the bench regularly have got to play important minutes, but most notably, they have done so at a high level. While those who always played have become players who must earn their place in the starting eleven.

We are just a few days away from the start of the last FIFA week before the World Cup in Qatar 2022, which means that the calls by the managers of each nation name players who are likely to be part of the squad that will travel to the World Cup tournament.

The situation with the English team is somewhat particular, as the young English players of the Red Devils, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford, were not called to be part of this last call-up. Marcus, who is the top scorer and assist man in the league this season, and Jadon, who has not been called up to the national team since October last year, were not called up. The Man Utd legend had this to say:

"What was surprising was to see a number of players named who have not been active at club level ”

He lamented the situation of the 22-year-old, who has been active for Man Utd this season, and said he was surprised to see players with secondary roles such as Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw on the preliminary list. He added that he understands Sancho's frustration at the same situation of players not playing and being called up for Nations League games against Italy and Germany ahead of the World Cup.
