Phil Foden could have a major impact at the Euros.
The 21-year old enjoyed a blistering season with Manchester City and was named PFA Young Player of the Year.
Michael Owen, who is England’s youngest-ever player and goalscorer in the history of the competition believes Foden could be one of the greats of the game.

“I think he’s special to be honest,” Owen said.
“We can get carried away. I look at some people saying he’s the next such-and-such, and he’s the next such-and-such, and I’m thinking, ‘come on, he’s not even in the same stratosphere as some of these players we’re comparing them to’.
“Foden is different. I think we’re talking about someone that could be a great. He could be world-class. Everything he does is so easy on the eye.
“He oozes class and sometimes a player comes along every generation; I was one, Steven Gerrard was one 20 years ago, then a Wayne Rooney came along and I think Phil Foden could be another one that comes along.”
