England Plot to Stop Vulnerable Bukayo Saka From Playing For Super Eagles

The English Football Association have put plans in place to stop Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka from jumping the ship to West Africa.

Saka 18, made a sensitive comment few weeks ago at a public function when questioned about his Nationality status by highly social United Kingdom -based, Kelechi.

Despite his decent start to the 2019/2020, the teenager couldn't add to his 24 international feathers over the just closed international break across all levels.
But his form has not gone unnoticed, with England U21 boss Aidy Boothroyd commenting on the teenager's potential as he hinted that he is being considered for a call-up at U21 level for games against Holland and Albania next month.
"He is definitely on the radar," the England U21 boss said.

Meanwhile, Arsenal team-mate Joe Willock believes it is only a matter of time before Saka makes the step up. "There are so many players coming through the ranks who are thriving with ability," Willock said.

"Saka isn't in the squad but he's an amazing player and I'm sure he will be one day."

Bukayo Saka is still very available to represent Nigeria having only represented England from U16 to U19 categories.
