Paul Scholes: Gareth Southgate values Jesse Lingard more than Jose Mourinho

England secures spot in World Cup round of 16 with win over Panama

Harry Kane hits three as England rout Panama 6-1, advance to World Cup last 16

England and Manchester United defender Phil Jones praised team-mate Jesse Lingard for his rapid development for club and country.

Jesse Lingard is now taking his position as midfielder on the England team at the 2018 World Cup.

It's far from the most controversial goal celebration to have rocked the World Cup so far - that honour goes to the Swiss-Kosovan players who flipped the bird, as it were, at their Serbian rivals - but older viewers of England's 6-1 thrashing of Panama on Sunday may nonetheless have been baffled by Jesse Lingard's post-goal dance moves. I was always the last out of our group to get a game. The Manchester United forward played a 1-2 with Ashley Young and exchanged passes with Raheem Sterling before shifting the ball across and bending it into the top corner. "I want to play for England, I was devastated, gutted, it took away a lot of my performance in an England shirt".

Jesse Lingard chose to donate £350 worth of training gear to one of the youth teams he played with as a youngster. "You're right. He was a late developer and the coaches had to realise that".

"Warren Joyce, brilliant coach at the Under-23s, he realised Jesse would need more time".

Discussing his rise to prominence with the national side, Scholes also suggested that Gareth Southgate placing more trust in his abilities than United manager Jose Mourinho may be a factor in this.

"It took me ages". "Possibly, the manager for England has a little bit more belief in him than his club manager".

"I see it week in, week out".

"He's really flourishing and thriving in that atmosphere".

Captain Harry Kane scored a hat-trick and there were two goals for John Stones and one for Jesse Lingard in the Group G match in Nizhny Novogrod.

The Red Devils finished in second place and 19 points behind champions Manchester City last term as they ended up without a trophy.
