England’s fine start to the nation’s qualifying campaign for next year’s European Championships continued on Sunday, courtesy of a comfortable victory over Ukraine. The Three Lions, of course, were back in action a short time ago.
After navigating what was widely regarded as their toughest qualifying fixture to ultimately emerge on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline against Italy during the week, Gareth Southgate’s troops returned to base in London, to play host to Ukraine.
Harry Kane and Bukayo Saka made it a perfect start for England after they dominated Ukraine to secure six points from their first two Euro 2024 qualifiers. The Three Lions captain tapped home the opener after claiming his country’s all-time scoring record in midweek away to Italy.
Saka then doubled the lead with a stunning strike against Ruslan Rotan’s visitors, allowing Gareth Southgate’s side to beat his two biggest rivals for qualification over a crucial four days. This article will focus on why Mudryk’s performance yesterday showed why Arsenal were lucky not to sign him. Take a look!.
Mudryk failed to make any impact in the game
Mudryk was heavily linked with a move to the north London outfit in the January transfer window, only for the Blues to swoop in and hijack the deal.
Mudryk was substituted from his nation’s Euro 2024 qualifying match after 61 minutes against England as he failed to make an impact, with the Three Lions prevailing 2-0.
Mudryk hasn’t had the easiest start to life in England, with the 22-year old racking up just one assist in his seven games at Chelsea. His performance against England yesterday showed why Arsenal were lucky not to sign him.
