‘Oh my word’: BBC pundit stunned by Arsenal player on international duty

Dion Dublin has raved about Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka for his goal for England against Ukraine at Wembley Stadium in London.

The former Manchester United player was stunned by the goal that Arsenal winger Saka scored for England against Ukraine in the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifier on Sunday.

The 21-year-old found the back of the net for the Three Lions in their 2-0 win against Ukraine in Group C.

The goal came in the 40th minute.

Saka turned away from his man on the edge of the area and curled a superb effort beyond the reach of Anatoliy Trubin and into the top corner.

The Arsenal winger also provided the assist for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane’s goal in the 37th minute.

Praise for Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka for England goal v Ukraine

Dublin said on BBC Sport: “Oh my word. What a finish from Bukayo Saka. He drifts into the corner edge of the box and sets himself perfectly to curl it in at the far post.

“What a finish! He’s had no joy in the game until the last five minutes.”

Gem of a player

In our view, Bukayo Saka is one of the best young players in the world and is a key figure for Arsenal and England.

The forward scores goals and creates chances, and he is only 21 now.

Saka can only develop and progress in the coming years.

The 21-year-old could become a world-class player in two or three years time.

Many will even argue that Saka is already world class now.

Saka will play a massive role for Arsenal in the coming weeks and months, as Mikel Arteta’s side aim to win the Premier League title this season.
