An incredible compilation of Bukayo Saka's performance during England's 1-0 win over Czech Republic has emerged and he truly stood out.

The 19-year-old was handed a shock Euro 2020 start by Gareth Southgate at Wembley, with Phil Foden missing from the squad.

Saka took the opportunity with both hands, however, and proved to be a menace down the right.

He played a key role in Raheem Sterling's goal and completed five take-ons - joint-most from an England teenager since records began.


Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford started on the bench and Southgate's decision was questioned.

But Saka made everyone eat their words and he is in firm contention to start next week's last 16 tie.

Fans have reacted to his performance and they adore his lack of fear when bombing forward.





Foden had started England's last two games on the right wing but missed out Tuesday's win due to being on a booking.

Gary Neville stated at full-time that Foden should be aware of Saka's performance and what it means for his place.

"Tonight we have seen Saka, Sterling and [Jack] Grealish," Neville said per the Mirror.

"These three have put the likes of Rashford and Foden under real pressure.

"It wouldn't surprise me if Gareth stuck with these three. I think Foden will come back in, but it'll be tough to leave one of those three out after this."

He continued: "I'm hoping Phil Foden is watching that, who's been out because of the yellow card, I hope he's watching Saka.

"He's taking the ball on the back foot all of the time, he's driving at people. That's what we expected from Foden in the first two games.

"We didn't quite get it, we know how exceptional he is. I think he could have inspired his teammates tonight, Saka."

England will face one of France, Germany, Portugal or Hungary in the next round after topping Group D.

They will learn their fate later this evening when Group F play their final games.
