By Mukwuzi Joseph

Nigerians chances of having Arsenal player Bukayo Saka represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria has been dashes following the latest round of invitees to the three Lion.

The player was eligible to play for the Eagles because of his Nigerian descent but will now have to dawn the colours of the Three lions.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Bukayo Saka and Harvey Barnes have been handed their first senior England call-ups, while Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have been dropped.

Saka, 19, has featured just three times for Arsenal during this campaign but broke into the first-team and impressed while playing at full-back for the Gunners last season. Barnes, 22, meanwhile has helped Leicester to the top of the early Premier League table.

As expected, Southgate has left out Greenwood and Foden after the pair were sent home from Iceland last month for breaching coronavirus protocols by meeting up with two women inside the public areas of the team hotel.
