Phil Foden OUT of England squad for Euro 2020 final vs Italy as Man City starlet suffers heartbreaking injury

HEARTBROKEN Phil Foden missed out on an England squad place for tonight's Euro 2020 final with Italy due to a foot injury.

Three Lions' boss Gareth Southgate confirmed in the hour before kick-off that the Manchester City wideman has failed to recover from a knock suffered in training on Friday.

Southgate admitted it was a huge blow for both him and the player, describing the news as "very difficult".

He added: "It's not something that's going to keep him out for a long time.

"But unfortunately he's wasn't able to run properly yesterday.

"So it's heartbreaking for him and a disappointment for us."

Southgate also left out Foden's fellow winger Bukayo Saka as he switched from 4-3-3 to 3-5-2.

That meant Kieran Trippier coming in at right-wing back, with Kyle Walker moving inside next to Harry Maguire and John Stones in defence.

Foden, 21, is expected to be fit to start pre-season training with City.

Southgate had revealed on Saturday: “Phil has got a very slight foot injury which he felt after training.

“He didn’t train today – and I’d have to say he’s doubtful for tomorrow.

“We’ll check him again later. It’s not something that will keep him out for a long time, but it might be that the game comes too soon.”
