Former England striker Michael Owen has tipped Manchester City midfielder, Phil Foden to shine for thee Three Lions in Euro 2020.
Foden, who was a star for the Citizens in the just concluded Premoer League, where Manchester City were crowned champions, will be hoping to replicate Owen’s performance at the tournament.
In a chat TribalFootball, Owen stated that Foden will set Euro 2020 on fire.
“I think Foden is special, he’s different. I think we are talking about someone that could be a great, he could be world class,” Owen said.
“His strength is the way he moves, his first touch. It’s all effortless, the way he glides into the game. A lot of people take a touch and then move. Everything he does is so easy on the eye.
“He has real speed that people don’t even notice because he doesn’t look like a speedster. His attitude, his mentality to the game shows he’s just a born footballer.
“His decision making, his ability to score goals, to assist goals, 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.”
