Coach Southgate said: “Foden’s ability to play in the Euro 2020 final is still open. His condition will be updated shortly before the finals. However, as of now, nothing is certain, although Foden’s injury is not serious.”
Before that, Phil Foden was expected to start in England’s starting line-up. The Manchester City striker is an important player for the Three Lions. He played very well in England’s first two matches in the Euro 2020 finals, but was later put on the bench by coach Southgate because he was afraid of the penalty card issue.

If Foden cannot play, the team still has two other quality players who can take on the role of a right winger. A big question is whether coach Southgate will use Bukayo Saka or Jadon Sancho in the starting line-up in the final against Italy.
On the side of the Italian team, coach Roberto Macini is also very worried about the case of Federico Chiesa. The Juventus player had an impressive performance in the blue shirt at Euro 2020. The 1997-born striker had fitness problems and was substituted at the beginning of extra time in the victory of the Italian team. against Spain in the semi-finals. Chiesa’s ability to play is also open.
