JUST IN: Nigerian-Born Bukayo Saka Becomes Youngest Player To Score Hat-Trick for England since Walcott—Bukayo Saka on Monday made history after scoring the first hat-trick of his career for England in their Euro 2024 qualifier against North Macedonia.
Recall that Saka scored a hat-trick as England defeated North Macedonia 7-0 in their Euro 2024 qualifier at Old Trafford. Harry Kane scored a brace, while Marcus Rashford and Kalvin Phillips were also on the score sheet.
However, Saka’s three goals against North Macedonia means the 21-year-old has become the youngest and first Arsenal player to score a hat-trick since Theo Walcott in 2008. The result against North Macedonia means England tops Group C with 12 points from four games. Gareth Southgate’s side will face Ukraine in their next Euro qualifier in September.
