Video: Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka spotted in training ahead of England’s Euro 2020 semi-final

Arsenal wonderkid Bukayo Saka missed England’s victory over Ukraine on Saturday with a knock, but is back in full training with the squad as he looks to battle for a starting role against Denmark.

The 19 year-old earned his place in the side following a UEFA Star of the Match Award winning performance against the Czech Republic, and was rightly selected to keep that his role against Germany.

Saka will not have been pleased at losing his place thanks to a minor injury, but I have no doubts that he will be giving 100% in training ahead of the all-important semi-final on Wednesday evening, and I certainly believe that he should return to the starting XI if he can prove his injury is behind him.

Thankfully he looks ready to go in training today, with just over 48 hours until the big game at Wembley.

Could Sancho, Foden or Rashford be in contention to start ahead of Saka on Wednesday?

    Your suggestion that young Saka would not be best pleased at being overlooked because of a “minor injury”is highly unlikely to be the case.As a dedicated young professional in the early stage of his international career, I am sure he would be fully appreciative of the need for the National Manager not to take any risk with any player who is not 100% fit.

    He said he was fit for the Ukraine match but the manager rested him so an extra 4-5 days training he should be back upto speed and IMO he should be starting along with grealish and Sterling who as been England’s best player so far ,for me foden and Mount haven’t set the Euros alight and should both be starting from the bench .

    1. Grandad says:

      So you would play Grealish as the number ten in the hole behind Saka, Kane and Sterling?

      1. Dan kit says:

        If he goes 3-4-3 again then yes

        Pickford
        Walker stones Maguire
        Trippier Philips grealish shaw
        Saka Kane Sterling

        No need to play rice and Philips in the same team especially against Denmark we should be going more offensive .

        Or if he goes 4-2-3-1 like he did against the Czechs then the same team applys but rice comes in for Walker or trippier .
        Southgate likes to go man for man in his line ups so I’m not sure on formations and what Denmark have been using .
