It’s been two years since Phil Foden won the U17s World Cup with England, and Manchester City have put out a tribute for the youngster.
Should Phil Foden leave Manchester City?
The teenager has been steadily nurtured into the City first team by manager Pep Guardiola, having more and more impact as his list of appearances for the Sky Blues grows.
Recently, Foden scored the second goal off the bench in City’s 2-0 Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb – and going further back, buried the winner and only strike of the game in their crucial 1-0 league win at home to Tottenham back in late April.
It’s clear the 19-year-old has bags of potential and could be one of the Citizens’ future stars, with some touting him to be David Silva’s future replacement.
His list of accolades at such a young age is astonishing, currently holding the record for youngest ever player to win the Premier League along with a Young Sports Personality of the Year award – made even more impressive by his international achievements with England at junior level.
Marking his U17s World Cup final win in 2017, a match where Foden grabbed a brace, the club put out a celebratory post – and fans reacted with plenty of praise.
Here’s how the Sky Blues commemorated Foden’s special anniversary.
