White pulls out of England squad 0

Posted on May 31, 2022 by Harry Kettle

As confirmed by BBC, Gunners defender Ben White – better known as Benjamin White following that now-viral interview – has had to pull out of the England squad due to injury and will continue his rehabilitation with the club.

The 24-year-old was originally named in the squad by manager Gareth Southgate but has been judged to not be fit enough to take part in proceedings moving forward.

The hamstring issue has ensured he’ll have to sit this set of games out with Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramdsale both also being selected from Arsenal’s camp.

Bukayo Saka has left the England camp for this international break and returned to the club following a positive test to COVID-19, the Arsenal winger has confirmed. Gareth Southgate hasn’t called up anyone to replace him as his team prepare to take on Switzerland on Saturday.

” I am gutted to withdraw from @england camp but I have tested positive for Covid-19 and I will be isolating until I am negative. I’ll be supporting the boys from home this weekend and I can’t wait to be being back doing what I love soon,” Saka tweeted.

It was another impressive night at the office for the England national team as they ran out 10-0 winners over minnows San Marino – securing qualification for next year’s World Cup in the process. It was the kind of result that was never going to be in doubt and while San Marino showed heart in places, this was embarrassingly easy for the Three Lions.

The big news for Arsenal fans, though, is how well the three Gunners players in the squad performed. Aaron Ramsdale kept a clean sheet in goal, Emile Smith Rowe scored in the 58th minute and Bukayo Saka put the final nail in the coffin in the 79th minute.

Aaron Ramsdale is expected to be handed his England debut tonight (Monday) as Gareth Southgate’s team play their final match in Group I of the World Cup qualifications away to San Marino.

Having been called up for the international break in October, the Arsenal goalkeeper sat on the bench against Andorra and Hungary, making way for Everton’s Jordan Pickford and West Bromwich Albion’s Sam Johnstone, respectively. Both him and Johnstone watched Pickford stand between the posts in the thrashing of Albania on Friday, but now, it seems Ramsdale will get his chance.

England boss Gareth Southgate has called up Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka and goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale for the remaining two matches of the World Cup qualifications during the upcoming international break. The Three Lions face Albania next Friday and San Marino the following Monday, needing four points to make absolutely certain they finish top of Group I, ahead of Poland and Albania.

There can be no doubt over the fact that both Saka and Ramsdale have earned to play for their country with excellent performances this season.

Football didn’t come home – but Arsenal can 0

All England fans watched in horror on Sunday night as yet another penalty shootout heartbreak cost the Three Lions their chance at winning Euro 2020. It was a familiar tale of disappointment and yet, the overriding feeling of pride for the squad is something that we don’t think will ever go away.

Arsenal supporters have had to endure a similar feeling of “so close, yet so far” for quite some time now and this season, we’re pretty sure that isn’t going to fly as Mikel Arteta knows the stakes involved with another big failure.

Arsenal release statement on Bukayo Saka 0

On Sunday night, England came up short in their attempt to win Euro 2020 as they fell to a penalty shootout loss at the hands of Italy. It was a desperately disappointing evening for the Three Lions who, for an hour of the game, seemed to be on their way to lifting their first major trophy since 1966.

Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka was the man who took and missed the decisive fifth penalty and, after receiving some horrendous insults across social media, Arsenal Football Club decided to release the following statement as the attention now shifts back to the start of the new domestic season.

Is it.. coming home? 0

Posted on July 07, 2021 by Harry Kettle

It’s been 55 years since England last played in a major international final – and on that day, they won the 1966 World Cup. Now, they’re just one game away from reaching the Euros final for the first time as they gear up to play Denmark in a Euros semi-final at Wembley.

It’s the kind of fixture that can define a generation and, if they win, will bring the same reputation forward to the clash with Italy on Sunday for the final.

Bukayo Saka is going to be the man, hopefully, flying the flag for Arsenal as the Gunners youngster attempts to play a role in getting the Three Lions over the finish line.

Saka stars once again for England 0

We’ve all seen some pretty incredible things in our days of watching football but few could’ve imagined scenes like last night in our lifetime. England, after years of waiting, finally put their many German-related nightmares to rest with a 2-0 win that takes them into the quarter-finals of UEFA Euro 2020.

While both goals may have come late in the second half, we truly do think Bukayo Saka had an important role to play in building confidence for the Three Lions in that first 45 minutes. He was quick, strong and constantly tried to make things happen – even if it seemed like there was nothing on for him.

The rise of Bukayo Saka 0

At the age of just 19, Bukayo Saka started for England last night at Euro 2020 and put in a really solid shift. He was quick, creative and versatile with what he brought to the table, cementing his status as a phenomenal attacking option for the Three Lions as they move forward in this tournament.

England will now have to wait until this evening to discover who they’ll be playing next Tuesday in the Round of 16, but from there, it seems as if there’s a whole lot of excitement regarding what could happen next – so long as they maintain their defensive strength and start to really get after teams going forward.
