Phil Foden LEAVES England camp at the Euros to return to the UK and his pregnant girlfriend for a ‘pressing family matter’, the FA confirm

  • Phil Foden had left the English camp to return home due to family matters
  • An FA spokesperson said the Manchester City star has returned to Britain ‘temporarily’
  • Listen to It all starts! EUROS DAILY: This is a poorly coached team! Are England sleepwalking towards an early exit?

Phil Foden has left the England squad for the European Championship and flown home due to an urgent family matter, the Football Association has confirmed.

The Manchester City star has started all three of England’s matches at the tournament in Germany so far and his absence is expected to be ‘temporary’.

An FA spokesman said: ‘Phil Foden has temporarily left the England camp and returned to Britain due to an urgent family matter.’

It is not yet known specifically why Foden has left Gareth Southgate’s group, but his absence could put his involvement in their last-16 match on Sunday in doubt.

Foden played most of England’s insipid 0-0 against Slovenia on Tuesday evening and flew home less than 24 hours later.
