In Naples last week, the world witnessed the brilliance of young star Jude Bellingham, with another stellar performance. However, in England’s latest game against Ukraine, it was the turn of Bukayo Saka to shine. Saka’s stunning curled shot proved he is one of England’s most impressive rising stars.
Saka’s constant source of elegant elusiveness and creativity embodies the qualities that every manager desires. His high-quality and low-maintenance style has made him one of Southgate’s priceless assets. With every game, he strengthens his position and solidifies his role in the England squad.
England’s growing confidence in their team is palpable, with two wins out of two in their qualifying group. Their success comes from their youth, who are improving all the time in character and experience. With every game, they look more and more like a team that’s ready to take on the world.
Ukraine’s first competitive game in over six months showed, as they offered little in the way of a football threat. The game felt flat and pedestrian, with England eventually breaking through in the first half thanks to Bukayo Saka’s assist to Harry Kane for his 55th goal for his country. It wasn’t long before Saka himself showcased his brilliance, with a stunning shot from outside the box into the top right-hand corner of the net.
As England continue to grow and improve, players like Saka, Bellingham, and Declan Rice will only become more valuable. With each victory, England moves closer to becoming one of the two favourites to win next year’s European Championships.
