Some Arsenal fans excited as Ornstein claims Saka will start Euro 2020 semi-final
Some Arsenal fans were excited after news from David Ornstein about Bukayo Saka ahead of tonight’s Euro 2020 semi-final.
According to The Athletic’s journalist, the 19-year-old is set to replace Jadon Sancho for tonight’s clash with Denmark.
The Hale End academy prospect has been a shining light for the Three Lions. He won the star of the match award after the 1-0 win over the Czech Republic. As a result, it earned him a start in the last-16 tie.
TBR View: Saka deserves to retain his place for Euro 2020 semi-final
After earning himself a start in the final group game, Arsenal’s teenage sensation has gone from strength to strength.
His performances have improved as the tournament has worn on, especially his desire to run with the ball.
AS Roma’s Jose Mourinho labelled Saka ‘very talented’ and ‘very experienced’ following his display versus the Czechs.
The young star averages the most dribbles of any player to start two games or more. He is also the second-most fouled player in the squad, behind Jack Grealish.
Saka deserves a recall to the side after his injury issues. The hope is he can fire England to their first tournament final since 1966.
Here is how some fans reacted to news about the Arsenal man…
