Nigerians Urge Arsenal New Kid On The Block Bukayo Saka To Pitch Tent With Super EaglesPublished: January 02, 2019
Promising Arsenal winger, Bukayo Saka has expressed his happiness after making his English Premier League debut for the club in their 4-1 win over Fulham in a London derby at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
Having made the match day squad for a topflight game for the third time this season, the 17-year-old came on for compatriot, Alex Iwobi with seven minutes left on the clock for his debut, thus becoming the first Nigeria-eligible player born in this millennium to do so.
"Proud moment for me and my family to make my @premierleague debut. Truly honoured and blessed. The hard work continues!💪".. the Hale End Academy product wrote on his twitter account.
Below are some of the reactions from the Nigerian folks who would, no doubt, be happy to see him pitch his tent with the African nation.
