Bukayo Saka was injured during England’s play in Malta.
In the first half, the Arsenal winger rolled his ankle after a hefty challenge and was replaced by Phil Foden.
At halftime of England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Malta, Bukayo Saka had to be replaced.
The Arsenal winger was a standout for the Three Lions in the first 45 minutes at the National Stadium in Ta’ Qali.
He had to be withdrawn at halftime after rolling his ankle during a sliding challenge near the end of the half. Phil Foden was brought in to replace him.
England led by three goals at the half, with Saka having a key role in their first goal. With Harry Kane lurking in the area, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s through pass from midfield found Saka running in behind, and his cross was diverted in by Malta defender Ferdinando Apap.
When the hosts failed to clear the danger, Alexander-Arnold scored England’s second goal of the evening, before Kane added a third from the penalty spot after being pulled down by Matthew Guillaumier.
Saka did have a chance to score before the halftime break, sending goalkeeper Henry Bonello into a leaping save with a driving shot from the edge of the area.
That was his final action of the evening before being replaced at the start of the second half by Manchester City’s Foden.
