Bukayo Saka has been nominated for the 2021 Kopa Trophy award, and as expected bunch of Arsenal fans were quick to react to the news on social media.
The youngster who scored for England in a 5-0 win over Andorra on Saturday night, is one of 10 players under the age of 21 to be shortlisted for the award.
Kylian Mbappe and Matthijs de Ligt are previous winners of the Kopa Trophy, with Saka up against players like Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Barcelona’s Pedri.
The results will be announced on December 3, with every Ballon d’Or holder to choose the winner.
So, here is how some Gooners reacted to such ‘massive’ announcement about their precious starboy.
“Hold up is that the same @BukayoSaka87 that the erstwhile pundit and ex…footballer #DannyMills said shouldn’t have even made the Euro 2020 squad?? I believe it is! So proud that we have such a fantastic footballer and decent young person representing our club @Arsenal”
“Omg he might actually win it”
“Has to be Pedri, buzzing our boy made the list though”
“Funny Saka can make top 3 and go to win this with his exploits at the Euros, could be a massive boost for him”
“Remove the other players because it’s only a race between Saka and Pedri.”
