Bukayo Saka made history as the youngest Englishman to start playing in the semifinals or subsequent major tournaments.
On Wednesday, when Gareth Southgate’s team won first place, Saka returned to England’s starting lineup to participate in the 2020 European Cup semi-finals against Denmark. Saka, who played in the 55 main event final, missed Ukraine’s 40th victory in Saturday’s quarter-finals due to a minor injury, but he still left a deep impression on the two goals of the Czech Republic and Germany.
Southgate chose four instead of five in the game. Nonetheless, Saka revived Southgate’s confidence in him by vividly showing the victory over Germany in the quarter-finals against Ukraine on Saturday, and by vividly demonstrating his trust in him, and in Sancho.
Sancho was impressed by Saki’s absence, but Southgate decided to leave. I remember that for many years a mature youth, Ted did not leave with the new contract of Manchester United in the starting lineup.
In the 39th minute, Saka dispelled the suspicion that Southgate made a mistake to leave the more experienced Sancho.
