London calling for England with Saka ‘confident’ of Wembley advantage

“Before, the objective was to win the group and qualify,” Saka said.

“We’ve done that and we’re onto the next round. Of course it’s going to be much harder teams we’re going to come up against, whoever we face.

“But we can take a lot of confidence from this group, having not conceded a single goal, and of course playing really well in this game, some good attacking football.

“Whoever we play we can go into the game with real confidence, especially playing at Wembley with our fans.”

A draw with the Czechs would have set up a potentially kinder last-16 tie in Copenhagen, but Saka says it is vital England retained home advantage in the next round.

“We know the stadium, we’ve played here many times and won here many times and now we have our fans back to support us, I think that’s going to be a real push for us and give us a lot of confidence whoever we come up against,” he said.

“It’s really special,” he added of his tournament debut.

“I’ve played here before and got a man of the match performance before but was without the fans and my family. So tonight to have my family and of course the England fans in the stadium was really special and its a tonight I’ll never forget.
