See Nigerians reaction on Twitter after Gareth Southgate left out Bukayo Saka for upcoming England’s UEFA Nations League matches
The 18-year-old Nigerian descent was Arsenal’s third-best player of the season behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bernd Leno.
Saka was also named Whoscored.com’s Europa League Young Player of the Season after the emerging king of assist in the tournament.
First he wasn’t nominated for the Premier League Young Player of the year 😔.
Today wasn’t called up by England despite the absence of left-backs in the squad 👀.

Sometimes, i don’t blame this players for choosing England over Nigeria, who no like good thing. Bt at the long run, England go dump them, they re numerous players with potentials coming up everyday in England.
Make dem just pity Nigeria nah!!!!

I don’t blame them either, in 1988 Samuel Okwaraji was called from Belgium, he died on the pitch, what happened to his family and his name in Nigeria today, Rashid Yekini etc. I will choose England over Nigeria
