The 19-year-old was impressive for Gareth Southgate’s side in victories against the Czech Republic and Germany before a slight blow prevented him from triumphing 4-0 on Saturday against Ukraine in Rome.
Manchester United’s new £ 72.9million man Jadon Sancho played for Saka and looked sharp, registering four successful dribbles as the Three Lions dominated the contest from start to finish.
However, Neville has claimed that the Gunners starlet is set to supplant Sancho when England face Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday at Wembley.
“I think Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane are choosing themselves,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“But between Saka, Grealish, Foden, Sancho, Rashford, I honestly think you could flip a coin between them all and it could land on one of them and you wouldn’t be disappointed. We have such strength in these positions.
“We are so blessed, that in fact, if I had to choose one – Bukayo Saka to come back for Sancho – but it is not because I favor one over the other.
“I just thought Saka brought such energy to the game against Germany at Wembley, and such energy to the game against the Czech Republic that I feel like he’s coming back.

“The Danish team won’t like playing against him – that doesn’t mean they would like to play against Sancho or anybody else – I just think Saka had an incredible influence on this crowd at Wembley. “
Saka has enjoyed a hugely productive season in north London, scoring seven goals and ten assists as he clinched the Gunners’ Player of the Year award in a tough campaign for Mikel Arteta’s men.
