The first day of the knockout round in Euro 2020 was fascinating with two close encounters. However, it was heartbreak for former Bayern Munich defender David Alaba as Austria lost to Italy in the extra time. The focus will soon shift to the biggest game of this round when England hosts Germany on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich will be having a keen interest in this game as multiple players from the club will feature in this game. The German Champions will be keeping a close eye on Leroy Sane as the 25-year-old winger looks to deliver a good performance for his country.

Sane has endured a difficult Euro 2020 campaign individually. He has hardly made a noticeable contribution like other attacking players for Germany. However, the former Manchester City winger is doing the right things to get back to his best and help Germany go deep in the competition.

According to Bild, Sane was spending extra time in training to get more shooting practice. The German winger is unlikely to start against England, but he remains a very potent option to make an impact from the bench.

Sane will eventually come good for club and country

It has been two difficult seasons in a row for Sane. He missed an entire campaign due to a serious knee ligament injury. Getting back to the previous level after such an injury is difficult as it has been seen in numerous situations in football over the years. Sane was also no exception.

After sealing a transfer to Bayern last summer, Sane has found it difficult to get consistency in his performances. Leroy Sane has shown glimpses of his best during last season, but the German winger can do much more than that.

Despite a stop-start season, he managed 19 goal contributions across all competitions. His inconsistent club form has made him an option from the bench for Germany rather than a permanent fixture in the starting XI.

Leroy Sane has admitted that he is slowly getting back to his best. Next season is going to be crucial for the German winger. If he wants to get back on the list of best wingers in the world, then consistency should be seen in his performances.

Julian Nagelsmann has managed to get the best out of attacking players during his time at Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig. Sane will certainly benefit from his arrival. Moreover, the German winger is also doing the right things in training, as it was witnessed this week to get back to his best for club and country.
