Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has taken to Instagram to laud England starlet Bukayo Sako.
The teenager was tasked with taking a spot-kick in a penalty shoot-out with Italy in the Euro 2020 final by manager Gareth Southgate.
Saka fumbled the finish, the effort was saved by Gigio Donnarumma, and the Azzurri claimed the European title.
There has been open criticism of Southgate’s decision, but Gerrard dodged that and hit social media with a classy message for Saka – in which he called the Arsenal starlet ‘brave’.
