England’s Phil Foden Withdraws from National Team Camp Following Surgery
England’s forward line has suffered another blow as Manchester City’s Phil Foden has been forced to withdraw from the national squad ahead of their Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine on Sunday.
The Football Association has announced that the 22-year-old underwent surgery to remove his appendix, ruling him out of contention for the upcoming match.
Get well soon, Phil ❤️

Foden had come off the bench during England’s recent victory over Italy, but his absence will be keenly felt by the team as they look to maintain their strong start to the campaign.
This latest setback compounds what has already been a difficult start to the year for Gareth Southgate’s squad, with Nick Pope, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Mount all forced to withdraw due to injury.
Despite the setbacks, Southgate will be hoping that the rest of his squad can step up and deliver the goods as England look to qualify for the tournament in impressive fashion.
