Gary Neville calls for Bukayo Saka to return to England starting line-up

Gary Neville has called for Bukayo Saka to return to the starting line-up for England when they take on Denmark at Euro 2020.

The Three Lions are set to playout the semi-final of the competition on Wednesday, after they booked their place by defeating Ukraine 4-0 last night.

Denmark also impressed as they defeated the Czech Republic yesterday also, and will certainly not be a team that should be underestimated.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been ringing the changes since leaving the group stages, opting to play a back five against Germany which proved to be a master stroke, before returning to a 4-2-3-1 as we blew the Ukrainians away.

We now look ahead to the next round with some more changes expected, and Gary Neville has called for the manager to stick with the same team from yesterday, but with Bukayo Saka returning to the starting line-up.

Saka is believed to have missed out in the previous match because he was nursing an injury that he picked up in training, but will hopefully be fit and ready to take his place in the team when we return to Wembley on Wednesday.

Did Sancho do enough to warrant consideration against Denmark? Does Foden also have to be considered also?

    Got to say and i haven’t seen him much in Germany but what i have seen of Sancho, i think he is way over hyped. Maybe good but so far in CL and England, im not impressed. Saka far better for me.

    Saka suit better than Sancho ….being Arsenal fan aside

    I shall be very surprised if Southgate makes any changes to the side which started against Ukraine.

    1. Reggie says:

      I would be surprised if he doesn’t, he has every game so far.

    I am very surprised Foden did not start in place of both SAKA AND SANCHO. IMO, Foden is better and more consistent than both, well though Saka has played.

    1. Grandad says:

      I agree wholeheartedly Jon.

      1. Andrew Elder says:

        So do I.

  5. Havyn says:

    Foden hasn’t been special in the first two games he played

    Saka has been better than all in that position. RW is not the position of Foden though, his actual position is LW

    I prefer dropping both Sancho and Mount and bringing in Grealich and Saka
