1 min read

Anglo-Nigerian Arsenal and England forward Bukayo Saka was the star on Sunday evening as England recorded their second win of the qualifiers to the Euro 2024 tournament with a 2-0 victory over Ukraine at the Wembley stadium.

Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka were the scorers for the Three Lions with the latter producing a Man-of the-Match performance capped by a magnificent goal from the outside of the box.

Gareth Southgate’s side built on the foundation of their first away win against Italy (2-1) since 1961 with an efficient performance that was more than enough to see off the visitors.
