Manchester City midfielder, Phil Foden has said that he feels sorry for England senior national team coach, Gareth Southgate over the stress in making the team’s selection.
The 20-year-old who had his fourth cap for England after coming in as a substitute against San Marino says there is competition for places in Southgate’s squad and he does not envy the choices facing the Three Lions coach.
“It’s hard to get a place [in this team],” said Foden, according to Goal.
“There are so many great talents in the attacking third, so I do feel sorry for him [Southgate] a bit having to pick 11.
“It’s very difficult and all I can do is keep fighting for my place. That’s all I can do really.
“It’s really important to be consistent with your club. I want to just take that form into England. If I don’t get picked I will just keep working hard and try and improve.”
