‘Great finish’: International coach left amazed by Arsenal star’s shooting in training yesterday

An England coach was left amazed by Arsenal star Bukayo Saka’s finishing in England training yesterday. 

The Gunners star has got off to a brilliant start to the new season, scoring four goals and providing six assists in 14 Premier League appearances. 

Mikel Arteta’s men currently sit five points clear at the top of the league and Saka has played a vital role in their near-flawless start. 

The 21-year-old is now preparing for his first World Cup with England after being called up by Gareth Southgate.

He faces a battle for a place in the starting line-up tomorrow, with the likes of Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling and Jack Grealish in the squad. 

But it seems that he is impressing England coaches ahead of their World Cup opener against Iran. 

Coach amazed by Saka 

In a video on England’s official YouTube channel, Southgate has been putting his side through their paces in Qatar. 

The Three Lions squad were involved in a mini-game today and Saka left coaches seriously impressed with his finishing. 

The Gunners star was linking up brilliantly with Manchester City winger Jack Grealish and the pair combined for a goal during the session. 

Grealish played the ball across the box and Saka then unleashed a low shot that flew past Jordan Pickford into the bottom corner. 

And an England coach can be heard shouting: “Great finish B!”

Saka looked sharp during the session yesterday and will be hoping to get the nod tomorrow. 

The talented youngster impressed in his last appearance for England as he came off the bench against Germany. 

He was used as more of a squad player at the Euros last year but looks set to play a key role in England’s World Cup campaign this time around.
