Saka Helps England Defeat Austria

By | June 4, 2021

Trent Alexander Arnold was injured late in the warm -up match ahead of Euro 2020, where Bukayo Saka scored the lone goal of England’s win over Austria earlier this morning.

England manager Gareth Southgate has denied his side have only strengthened a line -up of stars from Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United by fielding less experienced players in the friendly at Middlesbrough.

Among the youngsters who stood out from the 26 players selected was Arsenal winger Saka, who stuffed the ball into an already unguarded goal in the second half to mark his fifth appearance with The Three Lions with his first international goal.

However, the biggest moment for the team came late in the game, when Alexander-Arnold-whose selection into the team became a hot topic of conversation-suffered a muscle injury, which will undoubtedly disrupt his participation in the European Championships mid-month.
