Arsenal fans react as Bukayo Saka set to start for England in Germany clash
Arsenal flyer Bukayo Saka is set to start for the second successive game as England take on Germany tonight, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.
Saka won the UEFA Player of the Match for his efforts in last week’s 1-0 win over the Czech Republic at Wembley.
Those qualities haven’t gone unnoticed with Gareth Southgate. He is set to start Saka alongside Raheem Sterling behind Harry Kane as he switches to a 3-4-3 formation.
It’s been quite a season for the Arsenal man. He was once again a mainstay in the Gunners side and is now starring on the international stage.
He scored seven goals and claimed 10 assists during 2020/21, proving an integral part of Arteta’s team.
The 19-year-old is supremely talented and terrorised the Czech defenders one week ago. England supporters will hope that he can do the same tonight.
A change in system perhaps represents a risk for Southgate. The move has been made in attempt to match the Germans like-for-like.
Saka burst onto the Arsenal scene last season. He has grown as a player since then and as a result, he looks set to get even better in the coming years.
Tonight could be the seventh time he’s featured for England and it’ll be a proud moment for the young talent.
Future star: Arsenal fans buzzing for Saka
It’s fair to say that the Gunners faithful are beaming with pride at this afternoon’s reports.
They feel he thoroughly deserves to start the match; especially after his exceptional performance in England’s last game.
They seem excited for the player and hope that he can fire England into a quarter-final against either Sweden or Ukraine this weekend.
Following Ornstein’s report, we looked at what the Gunners fan base were saying about Saka ahead of tonight’s clash.
