TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta is confident that Bukayo Saka will feature for England at the 2022 World Cup, despite sustaining a leg injury against Nottingham Forest.
When asked whether Saka will miss the eagerly-anticipated competition, as per The Guardian, he replied: “Hopefully not.
“It was a bad kick right from the beginning and he was limping. But I didn’t see anything further than that, so let’s see how he is in the next couple of days. I think he got kicked a few times,” he continued.
England will begin the World Cup campaign on November 21 against Iran, in a game that Saka will hope to make his mark in.
The group also features the US and fierce rival Wales.
And after missing a penalty in the European Championships final, Saka is desperate to redeem himself.
