Saka was a surprise inclusion in England’s Euro squad as Gareth Southgate’s men were the youngest squad in the tournament.

 

The 19-year old wonderkid did not disappoint as he was named man of the match in the final group game against Czech Republic and was almost a regular feature in the team thereafter.

 

The winger’s scintillating run at the Euros ended in heartbreak when he missed a decisive penalty in the final game against Italy that saw England miss out on what would have been the first major International trophy in 55 years.

 

Following the defeat, Saka was subjected to racist abuse on social media as he appealed to all the major social media platforms to take measures to curb such vile acts on social media.

On his return to London Colney, Saka was greeted with a wall full of letters from Arsenal fans who had outpoured love and support for their ‘Little Chilli’. 

 

“I’m speechless. How do I even say thank you for all of this.”, said Saka, seemingly touched as he was going over the letters. “Can I just pick it all up and take it home?”
