Saka still thrilled by England call-up

“Yes, 100 percent,” he replied when asked if he was surprised by his speedy rise.

“I didn’t believe it would happen this quickly but I am here and I can only control what is in front of me and just do my best to stay here because obviously, this is where I want to be and where I have been working to be.

“All the boys have been so good with me.

“From the first minute I came in Harry Kane put his arm around me, spoke to me and asked me how I was and stuff like that – for him to do stuff like that helped me settle in much quicker and made me feel comfortable to be myself around everyone.”
