The 2022 World Cup has been heavily under the influence of the woke agenda, but one prominent star on one of the last eight teams has been forthright in sharing his Christian faith.

England winger Bukayo Saka - who has scored three times in four games for the Three Lions - recently shared how reading the Bible each night during his squad’s stay at the World Cup has given him a sense of grounding.

“Yeah, I’ve been continuing to do that out here with my Bible every night. For me, it’s really important to, obviously, have the presence of God in me all the time,” the 21-year-old, who also plays for the English Premier League-leading Arsenal Gunners, said. “It gives me more confidence that God’s plan is perfect, so I can go on the pitch and know that God has my back.”

Saka’s statement in this press conference is more than just a nice break from the usual diet of woke garbage many of these athletes have shoved down our throats since before this tournament started.

The winger could have easily deflected answers from this question and brushed it aside for the sake of keeping his reputation as an athlete intact. Furthermore, he is playing in a country that ardently suppresses any form of Christian influence, so speaking about his beliefs in Qatar could have easily given him adequate cause for concern.

But none of that prevented Saka from saying this in the conference, and he shared the hope he has in Christ with the watching world. And that is wonderful to see. 

The Three Lions will have their toughest test yet on Saturday, when they face off against defending World Cup champions France. While England will likely be slightly nervous about playing Les Blues, we can be confident one player will be brimming with assurance when he takes the pitch.
