London: England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed Phil Foden could miss Sunday’s Euro 2020 final against Italy after suffering a foot injury.

Manchester City midfielder Foden, who came off the bench in England’s semi-final win against Denmark, was absent from England’s training session on Saturday to avoid aggravating the problem.

The 21-year-old was in contention to start the Wembley showdown with Italy — England’s first major final in 55 years — but Southgate said he may not recover in time to feature.

“He’s a doubt,” Southgate told the BBC. “We’ll have to check again but he’s got a fairly minor foot injury.

“But it’s just whether it’s going to be one that clears up in time for him to be able to take part in the game, so we’ll have to assess that again later.”

Foden was one of the stars of Manchester City’s Premier League title-winning campaign last season.

He has featured in three Euro 2020 matches so far and was an influential presence after replacing Mason Mount in extra time against Denmark on Wednesday.
