Bukayo Saka

Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka has been named England’s Player of the Year for the 2021-22 season.

The 21-year-old won the award ahead of second-placed Declan Rice, of West Ham, following a public vote.

Saka was praised for the manner in which he bounced back from the heartbreak of missing the decisive penalty in the shootout of the Euro2020 final.

The forward made nine appearances for his country in the aftermath of that defeat to Italy, and scored World Cup qualifying goals against San Marino, and home and away to Andorra.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane came third.
