Gareth Southgate has admitted that England have an injury concern ahead of their clash with Ukraine tomorrow (Saturday) evening.
The Three Lions defeated Germany in a famous victory at Wembley to seal their progression to the quarter-final stage of Euro 2020.
England may well have to navigate tomorrow’s game against Andriy Shevchenko’s men without Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka, though, with Southgate having revealed the teenager is carrying a knock.
On Southgate Zoom. Asked if all #eng players are available, he said: “We’ve just got to check on Bukayo [Saka] who had a slight knock today. Other than that, everybody is available.”
Saka has started England’s last two games, but with Jack Grealish, Mason Mount, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho all in reserve, it’d seem unnecessary to risk Saka if there is any chance he’ll further the damage.
The 19year-old has had his tournament potentially derailed by injury.
