Living His Dream

Isn't this chap living his dream? At 19 Bukayo Saka has stole the show at a big stage. He's got the heart to do big stuffs. Winning a man of the match applause isn't a kid's feat in a Euro 2020 game.

Everyone especially Nigerian football fans are proud of their "blood" doing great for England. Such five-star display can only attract more regular action in a Three Lions squad loaded to the brim with stars. After Euro, the next stop for Saka should be the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Saka was a surprise inclusion in Gareth Southgate’s starting XI for the final Euro 2020 group match but fully justified his selection with a stellar display.

The Arsenal man, making his first appearance at a major tournament, had played a huge part in Sterling’s winning goal and added some much needed drive and dynamism after the tepid performance in last Friday’s 0-0 draw with Scotland.

“I thought Bukayo Saka was brilliant,” Sterling told the BBC. “I told him after the game that he got in the pockets of space, drove at people, he was direct and that’s what you need. It’s a credit to him.

“He’s tough, he’s funny, he gets on with everyone in the dressing room - I’m buzzing for him.”

More grease to your elbows great "Nigerian"!!!
