Euro 2020: Saka Voted MOTM In England’s Win Vs Czech Republic 

Bukayo Saka was voted Man of the Match after his impressive display helped England edge Czech Republic 1-0 to top win Group D.

Saka made his first appearance in a major tournament as he replaced Phil Foden in the starting XI.

He was in irrepressible form right from the off, and played a crucial role in the opening goal as he picked the ball up in his own half, beat two men and then raced forward before moving the ball forward.

The move eventually ended with Jack Grealish supplying a fine deep cross from the left, where the ball flew inches over Saka’s head only to be converted by Raheem Sterling. 

In the first half alone, Saka completed more take-ons than any other England player, completed four of his five dribbles and had the joint-most touches in the Czech box.

However, the second half was a far quieter affair, although Saka always looked a threat until he was replaced with seven minutes remaining by Jadon Sancho.

The win for the Three Lions means Saka and his team-mates will face the runner-ups in Group F in the last-16 on Tuesday.

    Congratulations Saka, you truly deserve it. You and Alaba are making us proud right there in Euros 2020. Indeed Nigerians can rule the world in Sports.

     
  • Southgate just poached this precious jewel from us! It’s unfortunate watching Saka, Alaba, Akanji and other guys that could have made SE a super force in the world captaining European teams or winning MOTMs cos of NFF’s tardiness and general administrative ineptitude.

     
    • What is nff fualt with alaba saka again. Haba Nigerians just like to find fault. We love to sing old songs.

      Nff did their best in the case of saka. Alana never had the desire to play for us.

    Nobody stole anything. European born or Mixed Nigerians have a right to play for who they want. And they made a right decision. These players can play for any national team, but only maximum 2 players of super eagles can play for European teams. Alaba wanted to play for super eagles, but he got turned down when they said they wanted to focused on home based players. These players are playing for top clubs, they are getting paid. It would be a step down to play for a national team that doesn’t pay, and people know this. I thought slavery was over, they not trying to be unpaid interns
