So talented: Watch Bukayo Saka brilliant performer in England vs Belgium

Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka marked his third senior England appearances with a stunning performances including a delightful piece of skill against Kevin De Bruyne.

The 19-year-old versatile attacking midfielder was called up by Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate for the first time last month and made his full debut in the 3-0 win over Wales at Wembley Stadium.

Bukayo Saka got another chance to impress last Thursday when he played the full 90 minutes of the 3-0 win against the Republic of Ireland and won a penalty from which Dominic Calvert-Lewin dispatched.

However, the Gunners wonderkid dropped to the bench for England’s Uefa Nations League clash away at Belgium on Sunday evening.

Although, the teenager was called upon after 38 minutes with the side trailing 2-0 thanks to first-half goals from Youri Tielemans and Dries Mertens.

On a rather disappointing evening for England, as they were knocked out of the Nations League, there was one moment involving Bukayo Saka that got a number of Gunners supporters off their feet.

Bukayo Saka receives a pass outside but is immediately pressed by two Belgium players – including Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

Instead of turning back and passing to a teammate, the youngster brilliantly manages to get past City’s De Bruyne who momentarily loses his balance.
