The winger started for England against Czech Republic, keeping the likes of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho on the bench.

Raheem Sterling won the game for England with his first half header, but Saka did impress with his dribbling skills and directness.

"It's not about young or old," Mourinho said on talkSPORT.

"It's about quality, talent, personality and experience.

"The guy is young, but has experience at big club and the best league in the world.

"I believe he is very talented, very confident, he can play in many positions.

"Of course people speak about Sancho and Rashford, there are so many good players.

"But I truly believe in Saka because I think he's a very good boy."
