Unfortunately for the birthday boy, who turned 20 on Sunday, he has not had such luck for the Gunners this season - having lost all three Premier League games so far.

And Manchester United legend Keane joked Saka should enjoy the win "because he's not getting any at club level."

Keane said on ITV: "I'm sure he can enjoy the win, because he's not getting any at club level."

The punditry panel, including Arsenal legend Ian Wright, couldn't help but see the funny side to Keane's off-the-cuff remark.

The Gunners sit rock bottom of the Premier League after going three games without a goal.

Prem newcomers Brentford embarrassed them in the season opener with a comfortable 2-0 win.


Then Arsenal were beaten 2-0 at home by European champions Chelsea, before a 5-0 drubbing at Manchester City.

That make it no goals scored and nine conceded for Mikel Arteta's men.

Saka is unlikely to be fazed by Keane's joking comment as he enjoyed the adulation of the Wembley crowd after banishing the demons of his Euro 2020 final penalty heartbreak.

He told ITV: "The perfect birthday present for me. I am really happy we got the win and I can celebrate my birthday with this.

I'm sure he can enjoy the win, because he's not getting any at club level.

"I'm really happy with the support everyone gave me.

"It shows how proud they are, I’m happy we could give them the win.

"It means a lot and it made a difference to me, hearing fans cheer my name made me believe everyone supports me.

"This is what I dream about, playing at Wembley in front of my family on my 20th birthday."

England manager Gareth Southgate was also pleased to see one of his young stars get on the scoresheet, and hopes the youngster could get some 'closure' after the summer.

Southgate said: "He got a fabulous reception before the game and during the game.

"It is lovely, you can see how popular he is with the team as well.

"I hope closure if it was needed but I don't think there is a player in that dressing room who thinks anything but positively about what he did all summer."
