PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Arsenal star Bukayo Saka has enjoyed a brilliant start for England at the World Cup in Qatar after scoring a brace in the 6-2 win against Iran. The Three Lions moved top of Group B with a convincing win in their World Cup opener with Saka now joint-level at the top of the scoring charts, with Ecuador's Enner Valencia and former Gunners striker and France star Olivier Giroud, in the race for the Golden Boot. The 21-year-old was a surprise starter after Gareth Southgate took the brave decision to start Saka ahead of Manchester City star Phil Foden, but it turned out to be a masterstroke with the Arsenal superstar causing problems for Iran throughout the game. His performance for England led to many praising Saka, who now looks set to start against the USA in England's second Group B fixture on Friday, November 25. The Hale End graduate has enjoyed a strong 2022/23 campaign so far and has carried his brilliant club form into the World Cup as the Three Lions aim to secure qualification from Group B later this week.
