Wednesday, July 7, was a special night for England but more so for Bukayo Saka, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell and Reece James.

 

When England bundled out Denmark from the Euro 2020 Championship on Wednesday, these four players from the Three Lions scripted history.

At 19 years and 305 days, Saka became the youngest player to start a match for England at the semi-final stage or later of a major tournament.

Now that is some feat for a teenager’s CV!

The other history makers on the night were Mount, Chilwell and James – the trio is the first Chelsea players to ever reach a Euro final for England.

Some memorable night for these England players that!
