‘It ain’t coming home!’ – Angry Arsenal fans react as Bukayo Saka is dropped for Euro 2020 final


Some Arsenal fans aren’t quite a happy bunch ahead of tonight’s Euro 2020 final.

This is in relation to Gareth Southgate’s ‘leaked’ lineup that doesn’t include Gunners wonderkid Bukayo Saka from the start despite the winger playing so well against Denmark in the semi-final.

But, according to a report from The Sun, the teenager will be dropped for tonight’s final against Italy at Wembley Stadium.

The reason for this decision is because Southgate wants to revert to a back five formation that worked so well against Germany in the last-16 stage, which means Saka will be replaced by Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier.

The exclusion will be a huge blow for Saka and one that former Manchester United captain Roy Keane will disagree with.

“It would be nice to see Saka”, Keane told ITV’s final preview show on Saturday night. “People worry about young players but we’ve seen him get interviewed and he’s taken it all in his stride and his pace and his movement have been outstanding.

“Pace is vital if Kane’s going to be dropping deep, getting down the sides of Italy is going to be a huge part of the game.”

And Keane is not the only person who won’t be happy with what Southgate is about to announce.

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to share their disbelief at Saka being ‘dropped’ for the Euro 2020 final.

@goonerdave66 said: “This no Saka no party partisan stuff is really pointless in my opinion. Southgate keeps getting it right and uses his 16 over the course of the 90 or 120 mins.

“Really not only about the starting 11 in this tournament. Our boy may still be instrumental tonight.”
