England boss Gareth Southgate explains Saka’s invitation

England boss, Gareth Southgate says he’s impressed with the development of Arsenal’s youngster Bukayo Saka in recent months.

 


Southgate handed the 19-year-old his maiden call up into the England squad ahead of this month’s matches against Wales, Belgium and Denmark on Thursday.

 

Southgate said Saka who also attracted interest from the Nigerian Federation has developed into a modern-day player whose versatility can be an asset to any team.

 

“At times for Arsenal he has been very exciting,” Southgate said. “He is improving all the time – really high potential, really high quality.

 

“Everyone tells me he is intelligent and a really level-headed boy. It is an area of the pitch we are keen to look at a different profile of players and he can play a number of roles comfortably.” He said.

 

England play Wales in a friendly on 8 October, before Nations League fixtures against Belgium and Denmark on 11 and 14 October respectively, with all three games being played at Wembley Stadium.
