Arsenal fans to Saka: 'Thanks for shutting Rooney up'

Arsenal fans have applauded Bukayo Saka for responding to Wayne Rooney's call for him to be left out of England's starting XI vs Senegal with a goal.

They made their views known in response to a post on Tribuna.

Bills Parker: "Saka just responded to Rooney on the pitch because he's far better than him when it comes to playing in the World Cup".

Segun Michael Emmanuel: "Thanks Saka for shutting Rooney’s mouth".

Samuel Etim: "Rooney, bury your face in shame!"

Oriyomi Ajao-Galaxy: "Racism and sentiment in the heart of Wayne Rooney".

Prakash Shah: "Wayne Rooney you have been proved wrong. May be that is why you never succeeded at Derby".

Ahead of the game, Rooney said he would stick with the side that defeated Wales - preferring Phil Foden and Marcus Rashford on the flanks.

However, Gareth Southgate recalled Saka to the team and the Arsenal star scored one of the three goals.
