  • Phil Foden has missed out on England’s final training session through illness
  • The 22-year-old is expected to miss out on squad selection for Hungary clash
  • Boss Gareth Southgate is expected to utilise other options in his squad instead

Phil Foden is now a huge doubt for England’s opening Nations League clash after missing out on their final training session through illness.

The 22-year-old, who has been nominated for the PFA’s Young Player of the Year award, looks set to miss out on the Three Lions game against Hungary on Saturday evening.

The Manchester City has trained with the squad for the rest of the week, but was nowhere to be seen at St George’s Park on Friday, as boss Gareth Southgate put in his final plans.

Southgate will most likely look to his other options and hold off on using the Foden with three other Nations League clashes coming up this month. 

Despite missing the first month of the season with an injury he picked up with England at Euro 2020, Foden registered nine goals and five assists for Pep Guardiola’s Premier League-winning side this season.

Therefore the attacking midfielder could be a loss to Southgate’s squad although he has plenty of options in the likes of Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and Jarrod Bowen that could fill that void.

Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi and AC Milan’s Fikayo Tomori also missed England training due to injury and could be potential doubts.

The centre-backs have reportedly not trained all week due to minor injuries, but continue to work individually away from the squad.

They are, however, expected to play some part in England’s four Nations League games – hence why the duo remain among the squad.
