Arsenal defender William Saliba admitted that starting at the World Cup would be a dream. Three years after his £25m move from St Etienne, Saliba has finally broken into the first team. He has been in superb form not only defensively but from set pieces as well where he has two goals to his name. Saliba has been called up for the Nations League matches against Austria and Denmark.
“When you represent your country it’s amazing. My dream is to play in the World Cup with my country and I hope I will be in the team for the World Cup,” William Saliba said about starting at the World Cup.
“William Saliba was hundreds of miles away, literally, and, perhaps, figuratively, when Arsenal suffered their ignominious 2-0 loss to Brentford last season. But he is here now. You could not really miss him at the Gtech Community Stadium on Sunday,” Nick Wright said. “The Frenchman, outstanding all season having spent the previous campaign on loan with Marseille, produced arguably his best performance yet to help Arsenal secure a 3-0 win which underlined their transformation over the course of the last year. His goal, his second of the campaign following his superb finish against Bournemouth, showed his aerial threat from set-piece situations, his towering header from Bukayo Saka’s corner bouncing off the inside of the post and over the line.”
