Saka named England Men’s Player of the Year Award For Second Successive Year

For the second year in a row, Bukayo Saka has been awarded England Men’s Player of the Year.

Saka was named the best player in the 2022-23 season by Three Lions supporters, ahead of Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane in second and third place, respectively.

The Arsenal star played ten times for England over the last 12 months scoring on seven occasions.

That record included four of England’s five games at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, including a player of the match effort against Iran in the opening game.

In addition, he earned two more player of the match accolades this season, for victories over Ukraine at Wembley Stadium and North Macedonia at Old Trafford, the latter of which included his first career hat-trick.

Saka was shocked with the news at St. George’s Park in the shape of a special present to commemorate his 22nd birthday, after reporting for duty during September’s international window.

He now has 28 senior caps to his name, and this latest honor comes on the heels of a successful season for his club.
He was also named PFA Young Player of the Season and was named to the PFA Premier League Team of the Year.
