Saka who through his charity organisation, BigShoe, sponsored ‘life-changing Operations’ For 120 Children In Kano State said.

“I can’t describe the feeling! It’s amazing, I’m so happy, I’m so proud. We got the win as well, so it’s just a special day.

“I feel like I’m in a good place. I have the support of the fans. I feel the love from the fans, the coaching staff and my teammates – that’s all I need! I feel good and I’m ready to give 100 per cent. I gave that today and I will continue to do that.”

Saka (21 years, 77 days), also became the youngest player to score 2+ goals in his first World Cup game since Franz Beckenbauer in 1966 (20 years, 304 days).
