Arsenal’s starlet, Bukayo Saka, has been handed his first senior England call-up.
The player was on Thursday named in England’s squad for games against Wales, Belgium, and Denmark.
He was born in England to Nigerian parents and had an option to pick either of the countries, Punch reports.
In a tweet, Saka indicated an interest in accepting the invitation to play for the Three Lions, putting to rest the expectation that he may feature for Nigeria.
However, until he plays an official game match for England he is still eligible to switch his allegiance to Nigeria.
“Honoured and grateful to get my first @england call-up! #Blessings,” he tweeted.
