Bukayo Saka gets England call-up

 

 

 

Nigeria-target and Arsenal star, Bukayo Saka has been included in the England squad for their upcoming games against Wales, Belgium and Denmark.

The Three Lions will slug it out with the Welsh side in a friendly at Wembley on October 8 before taking on the Red Devils and the Danish team in Nations League outings.

Saka has been in fine form for Arsenal since breaking into the Gunners first team and last season he featured prominently as Mikel Arteta’s men finished eighth in the Premier League and he also helped the club clinch the FA Cup title.

The youngster was born in England to Nigerian parents and has represented the European country at U16, U17, U18, U19 and U21 levels.

The versatile player has now been handed his senior invitation to the three Lions which could potentially end his Super Eagles chances.

He Tweeted:

Although Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick had previously stated the three-time African champions will not beg the 19-year-old to play for the country.

Saka is an excellent prospect but we have other players in his position who are playing so well,” Pinnick said.

We have talents everywhere so we won’t beg people to play for Nigeria. It is about ardour and fervour, If it’s their desire and they merit it, they’ll be given a chance to represent Nigeria.”

The NFF were also unable to convince Chelsea duo Fikayo Tomori and Tammy Abraham to commit their futures to the Super Eagles.
