Wayne Rooney has labelled Bukayo Saka a “top” player as he tips the Arsenal man to start for England at the World Cup.

Saka is one of their finest players and the winger has been named in the squad for the competition.

The Three Lions are blessed with attacking talents and he will vie for a place on the team with Raheem Sterling of Chelsea.

Both players have been good contributors to the national team when they are on the field and selecting one will give Gareth Southgate a headache.

Rooney also believes they are top players and predicts his team for the tournament saying via The Times:

‘On the right, it’s a difficult one.

‘For England, Sterling has been very good and Saka is a top player, so I would play either of them off the right.’

Bukayo Saka is now one of the most popular Premier League players and the attacker has shown he is worth the hype around his emergence.

He has developed from an academy player at Arsenal into one of the best players in the England squad for the World Cup in Qatar later this month.

Arsenal is currently at the top of the Premier League table and they also finished the Europa League group stage on top of their group.

Saka is an important contributor to both competitions and whenever he is on the pitch, we expect him to make things happen.

He was not his usual best as Arsenal beat Wolves yesterday and Alan Smith said on Sky Sports as quoted by HITC:

“Certainly not his best night. He has set such high standards.”

It now seems the youngster is being judged by a much higher standard because he has set them by his fine performances for Arsenal.

Is Saka “bringing Football home”? We will see it!
