Sancho played the entire match, his first in the competition, coming after the Red Devils agreed a £73million fee with the 21-year-old’s current employers Borussia Dortmund.

Although the youngster came close to scoring in the first half Ferdinand told BBC Sport that this was just a taster of what Sancho will deliver at Old Trafford.

Ferdinand said: “‘I’ll tell you what one thing at Man United he’ll have people off the seats.

“There’s moments in this game where he draws your breath and you think ‘ooh wow that’s different’.

“He’s a fantastic talent we know that but mentally he’s very strong. He’s got a desire to be as good as he can be and fulfil that potential.”

Meanwhile, Sancho’s potential Old Trafford teammates, Luke Shaw set up Tottenham’s Harry Kane and his fellow United teammate for the opening goals  as England knockout Ukraine from the championship.
