England tied 0-0 with the United StatesNext Friday for the second round of the World Cup. Phil Foden, Manchester City’s primary attacking midfielder, was on the bench throughout the game. On social media, manager Gareth Southgate angered English fans over the decision.
After Endgame, Foden’s name was the third most talked about term in the world on Twitter, second in the UK and fourth in Brazil. See some comments from the English on social networks.
One netizen wrote: “You know how crazy it is that the greatest coach of all time (Guardiola, City manager) picks Foden every week, but the former Middlesbrough player (Southgate) doesn’t pick him, audacity.”
Everyone who watched the game could see that Foden needs to come to Mount, with the exception of Southgate. He’s the reason this talented England side will never win anything – posted a fan of Foden’s rivals, Manchester United.
– Phil Foden not getting on the field today was a joke – he shared another English profile.
– I recommend Phil Foden to take the next trip home and rest with Erling Haaland (Norwegian Manchester City striker), – commented a fan of the team coached by Guardiola.
