Gareth Southgate lines up Fikayo Saka for England Call up


England manager Gareth Southgate has tipped Nigeria-born Bukayo Saka to challenge for a place in the English squad ahead of the Euro 2020.

England saw off stiff competition from Nigeria to capture Chelsea duo of Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori, with the duo in the the three lions squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers with Czech Republic and Bulgaria.


The former England U-21 coach believes they can get another one over Nigeria by naming the talented as one of the exciting youngster at his disposal for next summer’s tournament.


“We’ve got Callum Hudson-Odoi coming through and other players are emerging so quickly,” he said.


“You’ve got Bukayo Saka at Arsenal just dipping his toes in the first team as well. So, we’ve got really good players, we need more than three.


“I’ve always said that in tournaments that I played in, we always pinned our hopes on one player or two players. Southgate said.


Born in England, Saka is of Nigerian decent and has represented England at under-16, under-17 , under-18 and under-19 level.


Saka scored the winner for the England under-18 team in an away game against France and also cored on his under-19 debut against Moldova in 2018.
