He scored his first goal of the game towards the end of the first half in brilliant fashion after combining with Kyle Walker.

His second goal was even better, a standout strike after he latched onto a pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The hat-trick was then completed with a calmly struck effort that summed up an impressive day for the young England attacker.

Social media reacts

On social media, fans all said the same thing about Saka, who is arguably enjoying his best football in 2023.

Not only was he the top scorer for Mikel Arteta’s side last season, but he is also proving to be a gem for Gareth Southgate and the future of England ahead of the Euros.

As reported by The Sun, when he was subbed off in the 59th minute, Saka was treated to a standing ovation from the fans.

@Janette said:

“The first-ever senior hat trick is proof that he's a rising star in football.”

@Oroskoko added:

“Saka has just signed Declan Rice for Arsenal. How on earth will you not want to play week in week out with this gem.”

While @Arekunmi joked:

“Rashford has never put up such performance for us in his life and they want to increase his salary to 375k.”

Ronaldo’s admission before Iceland game

Sports Brief also reported on Cristiano Ronaldo’s interesting admission ahead of Portugal’s game against Iceland.

Despite being the leading top scorer (122 goals) for his country by a significant margin, the Al-Nassr superstar openly admitted his feelings ahead of his upcoming 200th cap for the Selecao against Iceland on June 20.

Providing clarity on why he experiences nervousness when playing for Portugal, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid ace revealed he has nerves ahead of international matches, but maintained that it is a good thing.
