Bukayo Saka is the star of the show as he scores a hat-trick for England against North Macedonia.
In front of a packed crowd at Old Trafford, England arrived looking to end the 22/23 season in style as they take on North Macedonia in the Euro 2024 qualifying round.
It took the Three Lions only 29 minutes to hit the front after Harry Kane finished off a fine move to make it 1-0.
Saka and Marcus Rashford then made it 3-0 before half-time.
In the second half, Saka scored his second in style as he volleyed home after a beautiful ball by Trent Alexander Arnold.
Four minutes later, Saka completed his hat-trick after being played through by Kane.
Fans were quick to react to Saka’s performance on social media.
One said: “I'm not an Arsenal game but what a player Saka is for England. Reminds me of the youthful exuberance & deadly nature of an emerging Michael Owen. Pray for his hamstrings!”
Another tweeted: “SAKA HATTRICKKKKKKKKK HE'S INCREDIBLE.”
A third fan added: “That Trent X Saka linkup is going to cook for a LONG time for England.”
Someone else wrote: “Saka has already surpassed Ronaldo’s international legacy imo.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “First career hat-trick for Bukayo Saka! A proper Baller!”
Another fan said: “Build your team around Saka. What an absolute monster.”

After scoring three goals, Saka was brought off in the 58th minute and was replaced by Manchester City star Phil Foden.
Throughout the 22/23 season, Saka was arguably Arsenal's best player as Mikel Arteta's men mounted a surprise charge for the Premier League title.
However, they eventually came up short as they were beaten to the title by Pep Guardiola's rampant City side.
Next season, Saka will be hoping to help fire Arsenal to glory as they look to challenge at the very top once again.
