And after some more dazzling performances under Mikel Arteta, Saka remains in Gareth Southgate’s plans for games against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.
Saka’s rise to the top has been extremely impressive and he already looks at home in the England set-up.
But one man taking credit for helping Saka settle in so well is Three Lions captain Kane.
Even though he plays for Arsenal’s fierce rivals Spurs, Saka has heaped praise upon Kane for ‘putting an arm around me’ and guiding him through his first experiences of the England camp.
Saka said: “All the boys have been so good with me from the first minute I came in.
“Harry Kane put his arm around me, he spoke to me and asked me how I was.
“For him to do that, it helped me settle in much quicker and made me feel comfortable to be myself around everyone.
“That helps me not just off the pitch but also on the pitch too, because I feel like I can be myself, express myself and play with the confidence that I play with back at my club.”

However, England have since been rocked by the news that Joe Gomez picked up an injury in training.
The Liverpool centre-back joins club teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold on the sidelines.
And there are even said to be fears that Gomez may have suffered a season-ending ACL injury, just like Reds talisman and defensive partner Virgil van Dijk.
