Phil Foden speaks out on England U-21 chances of winning Euro - 2019

Manchester City youngster Phil Foden has spoken out on England U-21 national team chances of winning Euro - 2019. Three Lions are in the same group with Croatia, France and Romania.

"I'm excited, playing against great players with great players", said Foden when talking with reporters.

"It is such a big challenge for me and I can't wait for the first game. It's the same tempo, and I'm sure it will be even harder to win this tournament. There are lot of better players.

"It takes a lot of heart and desire (to win a tournament), especially when you get into the later stages. You are playing the same team and you haven't got the legs; you've just got to use your mind and heart and pull through it. A lot of heart and determination have to be used." he added.

19-year-old is one of the players that will be under the attention during the tournament. England fans hope Man City starlet could show the same form he did during World Cup U 17 back in 2017, when Phil led his team to amazing victory. This season, the midfielder was part of Pep Guardiola's amazing team that won a domestic treble. Foden scored a vital goal against Tottenham Hotspur at Etihad Stadium, when his teammates were still under the shock of the defeat from Spurs in Champions League quarterfinals. That was one of the golden goals that kept Cityzens in leading position against Liverpool during the incredible title race. Source - Daily Mail
