Nketiah’s England Call-Up: A Step Towards Stardom

Eddie Nketiah, the young Arsenal striker, is set to make his debut appearance for the senior England national football team during the upcoming international break. The 2023/24 season has been a stellar one for Nketiah so far, with two goals in Arsenal’s opening three games and his involvement in earning a crucial penalty that Martin Odegaard converted against Crystal Palace. This remarkable form has earned him his maiden call-up to the full England squad.

Nketiah’s journey to this point has been nothing short of impressive. He has already solidified his reputation as a prolific scorer at the under-21 level, becoming the all-time record goal scorer with an astonishing 16 goals in just 17 appearances. Now, he is ready to take the next big step in his career by representing the senior national team.


Joining Nketiah in the England squad are several other talented players, including Aaron Ramsdale, Declan Rice, and Bukayo Saka.
