How (and why) Saka became the face of England's failure again?

By Global

If you hadn't actually watched England's defeat to Iceland in their final warm-up game ahead of the Euros, you'd have been forgiven for thinking Bukayo Saka was largely responsible...

Images of the Arsenal talisman adorned the back pages of almost every major newspaper - despite him only being introduced as a 65th minute substitute at Wembley on Friday night.

Today on The Sports Agents, Gabby & Mark are joined by football writer Henry Winter and Channel 4 sports correspondent Jordan Jarrett-Bryan, to explain the why the context matters, how those photos actually end up on the back pages of multiple publications, and ultimately, why this keeps happening with Saka & England.

And later, a sneak peek at Thursday's special episode into the fall-out from the announcement of a Netball Super League 2.0.
