Manchester City wonderkid Phil Foden has a point to prove if he starts against Iceland in the Nations League.
This game provides an opportunity for the young English International to put the horrors surrounding the reverse fixture behind him and show his true potential.
On International duty, English teammates Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood were caught breaking COVID-19 lockdown rules and sneaking girls into their hotel rooms before the Three Lions were set to play Iceland.
They were fined for breaking protocols and humiliated by the media. Both the players were also axed from the squad and sent home early.
After being dropped from the team for a triple header, Foden is back in the English setup. Team manager Gareth Southgate had words with the midfielder and is confident of Foden’s compliance this time around.
Speaking to the media, Southgate said:
“It has been good to have Phil back. He has trained really well and it was good to get him into the game against Ireland”.
“I am sure he has relished the chance to be back with the squad. We know he is a very exciting talent and he is a player who we have a lot of belief in and who Manchester City have a lot of belief in”.
