“How Bukayo Saka Became the Inspiring New Face of British Soccer,” is the title of the famous Time magazine’s feature on Bukayo Saka and 9 others who the magazine describes as “Next Generation Leaders.”

However, we at themigrantonline.com will say by saying “love always wins,” Bukayo is the new face of the world.

This is a guy who had faced racist insults for missing a penalty kick at the EUFA men’s Euro 2020 Final.

Bukayo Saka was born on September 5, 2001 in Ealing, Greater London, to Yoruba parents. He attended Edward Betham Church of England Primary School before going on to Greenford High School.

Saka’s parents migrated to the UK as economic migrants.

When his team, Arsenal Football Club, played against Tottenham Football Club in London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, over 60, 000 fans showed their hatred for his team.

However, when Saka joined the game in the second half, he was given a standing ovation by the entire stadium. According to Time magazine, the crowd demonstrated an appreciation for an Arsenal player in over a hundred years of serious rivalry.

Saka will play for England in the Qatar World Cup which is starting on November 20.

Saka who attributes his hard work and professionalism to his roots as a member of a Nigerian immigrant family still lives with his parents. The fact that he is on a multimillion- dollar contract has not gotten into his head.

On the World Cup’s migrant labor abuses, Saka says “We’re all humans on the earth.” He concludes by saying, “However we can help, we should.”
