Phil Foden leaves England Euro 2024 camp for ‘pressing family matter’

Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden has unexpectedly left England’s Euro 2024 camp to attend to a family matter in the UK, leaving the team without its key player just before their last-16 match against unknown opponents. The reason for his departure and duration of his absence are currently unclear, but Foden had been expected to be a crucial element in England’s campaign after an impressive season with Manchester City. However, he has struggled to make an impact so far at the tournament, and his mood has reportedly been visibly frustrated due to the team’s slow start and lack of cohesion.

But Gareth Southgate will certainly hope to have the attacking midfielder back as soon as possible, after a performance that showed glimpses of his quality against Slovenia on Tuesday night.

England right-back Kyle Walker has backed his club teammate to succeed on the international stage. “Phil is a great character,” he said. “I wouldn’t say he’s had a difficult path to get here, as he’s won a lot of trophies at Manchester City, but he’s had to be patient.

This is just another little thing he has to overcome when there is so much pressure on him now after such a great season, that big players have to rise up on big occasions.
