Arsenal Player ‘Saka’ Picks England Over Nigeria.

Arsenal star player, Bukayo Saka, has been assigned his first senior England kick-start.

On Thursday the player was named in England’s squad for games against Belgium, Wales and Denmark.

The arsenal star was born in England to Nigerian parents and had an option to pick any of the countries.

In a tweet, Saka stated his interest in accepting the invitation to play for the Three Lions, settling to await the expectation that he may feature for Nigeria.

Although, until he plays an official game match for England he is still qualified to switch his allegiance to Nigeria.

“Honoured and grateful to get my first @england call-up! #Blessings,” he tweeted.

Also, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire was named in the England’s squad after being released following his conviction in a Greek court.

Maguire’s Manchester United team-mate Mason Greenwood and Manchester City’s Phil Foden were both excluded from the 30-man squad after being sent home from England’s camp in Iceland last month for breaking coronavirus rules.

On October, England will play against Wales in a friendly match at Wembley before hosting Belgium and Denmark in Nations League matches on October 11 and October 14.

England Squad Team are:

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson, Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope.

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Conor Coady, Eric Dier, Joe Gomez, Michael Keane, Harry Maguire, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Tyrone Mings, Bukayo Saka, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker.

Midfielders: Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse, Harry Winks.

Forwards: Tammy Abraham, Harvey Barnes, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jack Grealish, Danny Ings, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling.
