Bukayo Saka bags another prestigious award


Arsenal midfielder, Bukayo Saka has added another feather to his cap ahead of the Three Lions qualifying game against Ukraine.

The English international was named the best player in the England men's team for the second year in a row. Saka won the award ahead of Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham and Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane, with both players coming in second and third place respectively.

He was given the award on his 22nd birthday and England teammate James Maddison gave him the gift-wrapped award in what was an exciting moment for the player.

Saka expressed his delight upon receiving the award from the Tottenham midfielder.

"Thank you very much, man. I am really grateful, Thank you for everyone who made this happen and it's a nice birthday gift as well so I'm happy."

The midfielder was in fantastic form for the Three Lions last year. He will remember the year for the goal he scored against Senegal in the Round of 16 at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup

He also picked up two Player of the Match awards from the win over Ukraine at Wembley and North Macedonia at Old Trafford, too, for scoring a hat-trick in the game.
