England is gearing up for some important matches on the football calendar. First up, they’ll be hosting Australia in a friendly match at Wembley this Friday. After that, their attention turns to a crucial Euro 2024 qualifier against Italy, scheduled for October 17 at the national stadium.
However, there’s a setback for England as Bukayo Saka won’t be available for these matches. The 22-year-old Arsenal winger, who was included in the 26-man squad, missed Sunday’s match against Manchester City due to a hamstring issue. Following an assessment by the England medical team, it was decided that Saka should continue his rehabilitation with his club.
It’s worth noting that England won’t be bringing in any replacements for Saka, as Gareth Southgate will continue to work with the remaining 25 players in the squad.
So, England’s football fans will be eagerly watching these upcoming matches, hoping for success on both fronts.
