Arsenal

Lukaku deals Chelsea transfer blow, Conte to Tottenham ‘looking likely’, Messi new Barcelona deal ‘agreed’


FOR GOODNESS SAK

By SunSport’s Duncan Wright

Bukayo Saka admits being England’s Mr Versatile can get tough – despite shining for the Three Lions and firing them to victory over Austria.

Saka, 19, scored his first senior international goal to seal the win and stake a claim for involvement when the Euros start next weekend.

The Arsenal star also ended up playing in three different positions to suit Gareth Southgate’s tactics and substitutions at the Riverside, to show just how capable he is as a footballer.

But the teenager admits constantly switching roles can cause problems and he needs the help of senior players to make sure he stays switched on.

Saka said: “It’s not easy all the time, you know.

“The information I get from the coaching staff and the players  makes things much easier – all the communication from the more experienced players around me like Kieron Trippier, Conor Coady, Tyrone Mings, making sure I’m where I need to be.”

“I feel like anytime I played for England I really enjoyed myself because of the quality and the top players you have around.

“Things feel good, things flow, I always feel like I can I can express myself and I think I did that.

“I can learn a bit from everyone, there’s so much different quality players especially in attack but even in the midfield and defence you know there’s so much experience I can take from everyone to try to speak to everyone and get some advice from them.”
