is adding to

Gareth Southgate’s

concerns by missing


next friendly match against Romania due to a hip injury less than a week away from Euro 2020.

Saka had an important part in England’s 1-0 win against Austria on Wednesday, scoring his first international goal, which was his side’s only goal.

The 19-year-old’s injury is being looked into to see if he can play in the Euro 2020 for Gareth Southgate’s side, who is already missing some important players.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has been ruled out from the England squad this week with a thigh injury, and Manchester United’s captain Harry Maguire and Liverpool’s captain Jordan Henderson are recovering from long-term injuries, and their participation in Euro 2020’s opener for England against Croatia remains in doubt.

The Football Association is not worried about the young talent's injury despite his absence in England’s warm-up game against Romania, and they expect the player to participate in England’s battle in the European Championship this summer.

It isn’t Saka’s first time struggling with a hip injury, and he has already missed Arsenal’s Premier League clash against Manchester United in January, suffering from a hip injury.

Gareth Southgate has talked about Maguire and Henderson’s condition for the upcoming tournament insisting that their participation in the group stage is in doubt.

“With Jordan and Harry, we have selected a squad that, if they don’t get there, we are not in a situation where we are short of numbers and we haven’t got cover,”

Southgate said
