Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (KDB) believes that young teammate Phil Foden has all the qualities needed to be one of the best players in the world. KDB talked about his fellow Manchester City player in an interview with ESPN. According to him, Phil Foden is destined for greatness and that he has been able to develop as a footballer over the past years at Manchester City.
The high praise from KDB is coming after Phil Foden impressed a lot of people during the international break. His breakthrough performance for the Three Lions came in the UEFA Nations League game with Iceland earlier this week. The 20-year-old scored his first England goals during the game as the Three Lions finished their 2020 UEFA Nations League campaign with an emphatic win.
Apart from scoring two goals, Phil Foden also provided a goal during the game which ended 4-0. He was responsible for the assist that led to the opener from West Ham United star Declan Rice. His quickly taken free kick was headed into the back of the net after 20 minutes of the game. England doubled their lead four minutes later courtesya well taken goal from Chelsea player Mason Mount in the Iceland box as the Three Lions recorded a 2-0 result at the half-time interval.
Iceland didn’t offer much threat going forward and things got worse when right-back BirkirSaevarsson got his marching orders following a second yellow card given to him for pulling back Arsenal player Bukayo Saka. Phil Foden went on to add two late goals to make the win a dominant one for his team. Second half substitute Harry Winks provided the assist for the second Phil Foden goal, Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho was responsible for the assist for the first Phil Foden goal.
