Good Morning Arsenal Fans,
USA keeper Matt Turner says his Arsenal teammate Bukayo Saka is already one of the “young stars of world football”.
Saka shone on his World Cup debut out in Qatar, scoring twice to help England see off Iran 6-2 in their Group B opener.
The 21-year-old now looks undroppable for both club and country – recovering phenomenally after his Euros final penalty shoot-out miss against Italy last summer.
Ahead of England v USA, Arsenal reserve keeper Turner said: “It’s clear he’s one of the young stars of world football.
“He’s a top, top player and you don’t need me to tell anybody on our team how much of a threat he poses in the game. He’s scoring in a variety of ways.
“He’s developed, matured and got stronger from what I understand. I’ve only worked with him for a few months.
“We’re looking forward to playing against familiar faces and, again, he’s a really, really good player that can change any game he takes part in.”
Meanwhile, it was a great day in the World Cup for Arsenal star Takehiro Tomiyasu.
He came off the bench to contribute to Japan stunning Germany 2-1 in another World Cup shock.
And there are more Gunners in action today with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey and Gabriel Martinelli set to make their World Cup bows.
Arsenal are also considering a January move for Palmeiras star Danilo to help keep their title tilt on track.
The talented 21-year-old has already made 141 appearances for Palmeiras and could bring an extra attacking edge to Mikel Arteta’s side.
