Tolami Benson, joined the growing list of Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) attending the ongoing Euro 2024 championships in Germany by wearing a heartwarming jacket in support of partner, Bukayo Saka.

Benson was spotted in the stands in Gelsenkirchen as England played Serbia in their opening game of the competition.

Saka started the game and lasted 76 minutes of the contest as the Three Lions began their campaign with a slender 1-0 win courtesy of a Jude Bellingham powerful header in the 13th minute.

The high-flying Real Madrid star scored the goal from a deflected Saka cross to set England on their way. Gareth Southgate's side, however, failed to impress with Serbia, pinning them back for long periods in the game as they searched for an equaliser.

What Saka's girlfriend did at England vs Serbia

Benson wore a memorable jacket after she donned the first number (87) Saka wore at Arsenal. Saka made his senior debut for Arsenal in 2018 in a Europa League match against Vorskla Poltava. He has been used in a variety of positions, including left-back and wing-back before Mikel Arteta finally settled on the right wing as his ideal position.

It is a position that has seen him transform into one of the best wingers in the Premier League. Last season, he scored 16 goals and provided nine assists in stats captured by the Premier League.

Who is Bukayo Saka's girlfriend, Tolami Benson?

Metro UK reports that the pair have been dating since 2020. While they have kept their relationship private on social media, Benson has been spotted in a couple of Arsenal and England games supporting the 22-year-old. They took a photo together in the stands at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The 23-year-old Benson is said to be a PR practitioner who works as the Senior Planning Executive for Zenith.

Bellingham explains his celebration vs Serbia

Sports Brief has also reported that Bellingham explained his celebration after scoring against Serbia.

The fast-rising midfielder was the difference maker in England's first game of Euro 2024 with a daring header in the first half.

Bellingham did his usual celebration of holding his hands aloft but did another cold one with teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold.
