Bukayo Saka's Brilliant Post-Match Interview After Terrific Performance Against Czech Republic

Bukayo Saka showcased maturity beyond his years in a refreshing post-match interview following England's 1-0 win against Czech Republic.

The 19-year-old forward was given a vote of confidence from Gareth Southgate in the form of a first European Championship start on Tuesday night - and he soon repaid that faith with another Man of the Match outing at Wembley.


He not only completed the most take-ons during the Group D clash but played a pivotal role in Raheem Sterling's winner, providing some much-needed pace and drive in the build-up with a penetrating solo run from deep. Just check it out below.

Saka continued to cause the Czech Republic problems with his speed, dribbling ability and overall versatility - and many are now calling for the Arsenal man to be selected again for their upcoming round of 16 clash on June 29 at Wembley.

The London-born winger certainly impressed on the pitch and moments after the final whistle, he earned even more praise from fans on social media with a great post-match interview in front of millions watching at home.

Perhaps the stand-out quote from Saka's interview was when he revealed Gareth Southgate's sound pre-match advice.

"He just told me to go out there and play my game and express myself how I've played at my club all season," the 19-year-old said.

"Sometimes that means dropping in and driving at opponents and I did that, it got us up the pitch.

'It was a good cross from Jack and Raheem was at the right place at the right time again to score us a goal. I was up there, but I'm not quite tall enough!"

Do you think Saka deserves to start England's next game at the European Championship after such a great outing against the Czech Republic?
