Gary Neville predicts that Bukayo Saka could be dropped out of England’s line-up in the Euro 2020 final against Italy.
The 19-year-old started the match against Denmark on Wednesday evening, as the Three Lions won with a score of 2-1 in extra time.
However, Neville thinks that it could be ‘one game too much’ for Saka, who pulled out of the quarter-finals due to an ankle injury.
“I agreed with bringing him [Saka] back last night because I felt he had been the most lively of the wide players, along with Raheem Sterling,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I am not sure he will start Sunday. I think that might just be too much for him”, he added, “What he did last night, the amount he has given in this tournament, I just feel we will see somebody else”.
The former Manchester United defender considers either Jadon Sancho or Marcus Rashford the best options to replace Saka.
“I actually think it could be a game for Rashford or Sancho to accompany Sterling in those wide positions”.
Gareth Southgate’s team will face Italy in the Euro 2020 final on July 11, at Wembley, London.
