Sunday’s qualifying programme for the European Championship, which Germany will host next year, offered an interesting duel between England and Ukraine. The home team was the favourite, which was confirmed in the match. Bukayo Saka shone with a great performance and an even better goal.
Wembley in London offered an attractive duel between England and Ukraine on Sunday evening. Despite the interesting players in the Ukraine line-up, the Albion players were the favourites and it was obvious from the opening whistle why this was the case.
England simply have better quality footballers and the picture of the game looked accordingly. More ball possession, more chances and most importantly two goals were offered in the first half.
Bukayo Saka in particular shone in the first act. The twenty-one year old Arsenal and national team gem showed that he is having another successful season. It is worth mentioning that he has played 38 competitive games in a Gunners jersey this season, scoring 13 goals and adding 10 assists.
He also scored an assist and a goal against Ukraine. First, he found Harry Kane with a great centre in the penalty area, thus increasing his record as the best ever goalscorer of the English national team.
But in the 40th minute, the English winger took the blame. After a pass from Jordan Henderson, he took the ball superbly in front of the opposition penalty area, cleverly broke free and then sent an uncatchable shot to the back post.
The wonderful football moment immediately went viral on social media, and football fans are enjoying Sak’s strike to the full.
It was the eighth goal for the Arsenal star with the England national team. Among other things, he collected his seventh assist in an Albion jersey. He made his 26th national team appearance against Ukraine.
