Arsenal fans react as Bukayo Saka is named in the England squad
Arsenal talent Bukayo Saka has been named in the provisional 33-man England squad ahead of Euro 2020 which takes place this summer.
The youngster’s place had been questioned recently, although Gareth Southgate has given him the nod.
Saka’s challenge now is to ensure he is with the travelling party when he trims the squad to 26 in a few weeks.
The Arsenal man has enjoyed a pretty decent season with the Gunners. He has made 46 appearances in all competitions, scoring seven goals and claiming 10 assists.
Saka could be the ideal player for Southgate to take. He can play in a number of positions and that versatility could be key in tournament football.
The 19-year-old is listed as one of the forwards and that’s perhaps where Southgate see him for England.
Following news that he’s been selected for his country, Arsenal fans have taken over Twitter to congratulate him.
Here is what the youngster had to say regarding Saka’s inclusion in the provisional squad.
