Watch: England’s Phil Foden kills the ball with beautifully athletic touch
Phil Foden is an outrageously gifted footballer and demonstrated this during England’s Euro opener against Croatia.
Foden’s performances for Manchester City during their 2020-21 title-winning season earned him a starting spot for Sunday’s match at Wembley.
And, after rattling the post with a curled shot after only five minutes, the 21-year-old got fans off their seats with a beautiful first touch.
Chasing a long pass upfield, Foden watched the ball and stuck out his left leg to kill it instantly.
After assessing his options, the City midfielder laid the ball off to a teammate but the attack eventually broke down.
