24 hours before the long-awaited final, Phil Foden shakes up the environment in England. The Man.City star left the last training session as a result of a blow to the knee during a control match.
The 21-year-old was not seen as a starter in the eyes of coach Gareth Southgate but in any case it is not good news as Foden is a very valuable jolly that Southgate could use during the match.
The English Federation has announced, among other things, that all 26 players available to Southgate have undergone anti-COVID-19 checks and all have tested negative. Like Roberto Mancini, Gareth Southgate does not intend to change lineup in the final.
The English coach will trust the 11 starters who came down to the field in the challenge against Denmark: Saka-Mount and Sterling will support captain Harry Kane. Rice and Philips are untouchable in midfield while the background will be formed by Shaw, Meguire, Stons and Walker.
