The Three Lions put in an impressive display, winning 4-0 against the minnows in a World Cup Qualifier.

Saka managed a goal and assist in the game, banishing some of the demons from his penalty shoot out miss against Italy in the Euro 2020 final in the same stadium a few months ago.

"This is what I dream about to play at Wembley, in front of my friends and family, a crowd and score on my 20th birthday so really happy," he said post-game.

"I think it means a lot, it really made a difference for me [response following penalty miss] only just now I can hear so many fans cheering my name so it means everything to me and shows that everyone supports me through thick and thin so it's nice.

"I'm really happy with the reception everyone gave me, it really shows how proud they are of me and I think that meant a lot for me and made me want to give my all and obviously I'm happy that we got the win.

"It's the perfect birthday present for me. I'm really happy we got the win and that I celebrate my birthday like this."
