Both sides played to a 2-2 draw in the first leg, as the second leg was expected to be a game-changer. However, that too ended in a 1-1 draw, with Arsenal losing the fixture on penalties.

It was unfortunate for both Arsenal and the Kardashian family, who went to support the London side. But more than the loss, it was Kim who faced backlash for face-timing the player. And it seems that has backfired on Saka as well.

Bukayo Saka gets trolled by teammate

Recently, the Arsenal star joined his England teammates, who are preparing for the Euro 2024 qualifications. After arriving at St George’s Park, the player met with all his respective teammates.
