Bukayo Saka stars in the premiere of the World Cup in England

Saka continued to link up well with Kieran Trippier on the right flank and capped off a fantastic performance with a second goal and England’s fourth just after the hour mark. Our winger penetrated the penalty area, cut inside, made a mannequin and calmly rolled the ball through four Iranian defenders and the goalkeeper to nestle in the net.

Reflecting on his World Cup debut, two goals and the Man of the Match award, Saka said: “I can’t describe the feeling. I’m very happy and proud. I’m ready to give 100% and I gave it today.” .

With his fifth and sixth overall goals in an England shirt, Bukayo Saka became only the fourth striker to score for the Three Lions in a major tournament, following in the footsteps of Tony Adams in the 1998 World Cup, Sol Campbell in the 2002 World Cup, and Theo Walcott at Euro 2012.

He also became the youngest player to score 2 goals or more in a World Cup debut since Franz Beckenbauer in 1966.
