Less than 12 months ago, questions surrounding his place in the England setup hung over the head of promising midfielder, Phil Foden.
One year later, the Manchester City star is arguably the best under 21 player in world football behind Erling Haaland and now dead cert to be involved, with the only doubts around the 20-year-old being which position he is most effective in.
Having shone under Pep Guardiola this season, Foden’s exploits have helped steer the club to a Premier League title, a first-ever Champions League final and a fourth-consecutive League Cup triumph, and during this time, Foden has reached his best scoring season to date.
As the favourite to win the Young Player of the Tournament award, the Stockport-born starlet is likely to feature heavily for the Three Lions this summer and with Jack Grealish only just returning from injury during a period of red hot Foden form, he may well start.
The young Englishman already has experience of winning tournaments with the national team after playing an instrumental role in England’s 2017 U17 World Cup win where he netted twice in the final against Spain. At the same time, Foden was named in the Team of the Tournament and awarded the competition’s Golden Ball prize.
If Foden is anywhere near the form shown at club level this summer, they'll only be one winner.
