Bukayo Saka has snubbed Nigeria for England as he has been included in Gareth Southgate's Nation League squad.

The London born versatile player is in the squad that would face Belgium (Oct 11) and Denmark (Oct 14) In the European nations league.

Saka, 19, has featured just three times for Arsenal during this campaign. However he broke into the first-team and impressed while playing at full-back for the Gunners last season.

Saka was listed as one of England’s defenders although he is versatile enough to play in more advanced positions.

His inclusion in the England senior team squad however means that when he plays against Belgium in October 14, he would become ineligible to play for the Super Eagles, despite his Nigerian descent.

Saka received his first call up alongside other first timers like Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Leicester’s Harvey Barnes.
