Match No. 1043 - Sunday, 26th March 2023, 5:00pm

  • Assist: Bukayo Saka. "Saka’s assist for the breakthrough goal was sumptuous, a slightly awed hum accompanying the big-screen replays. Kane had dropped off to spread the play with a diagonal and, when he darted for the far post, Saka curled the ball back towards him – call it a long-range one-two. Oleksandr Karavayev was in a bad position, feeling Kane behind him and, when the right-back attempted to spin and clear, it hit Kane and went in." Harry Kane55th of 62 goals. Left-footed from 5 yards., 37' 36:24
  • Assist: Jordan Henderson. "Saka’s finish for the second was even better. Addressing a short pass from Henderson, he always felt too smart for Mykola Matviyenko, taking a step to lure him one way; dropping his shoulder and skating in the other direction, further inside. He started the left-footed curler outside the far post but he put the bend on it to bring it back at the last moment." Bukayo Saka8th of 11 goals. Left-footed from 21 yards., 40'
