Euro 2020: Englishman Phil Foden suffers ‘minor blow’ as police warn fans ahead of final | UK News

England midfielder Phil Foden suffered a “minor blow” and missed the team’s training session on the eve of the Euro 2020 final.

The Manchester City star, who started two games during the tournament and came on as a substitute in the semi-final victory over Denmark, missed the final training session at St George’s Park on Saturday, the FA said.

The other 25 members of the England the team has trained normally and all players – including Foden – have passed their UEFA-mandated PCR tests for coronavirus.

Phil Foden now “unlikely” to start against Italy, according to Sky Sports News

Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett said Foden was now “very unlikely to start against Italy in the final” at Wembley on Sunday.

Italy left their training base in Florence on Saturday – but it wasn’t easy to navigate as they almost left a key member of Roberto Mancini’s squad at the hotel.

The team bus started to leave without ex-Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli, coach of the Italian team, before the alarm was quickly raised.

Some 65,000 fans will be at Wembley for the final, the largest crowd at a UK football game since the start of the pandemic.

The last remaining tickets went on sale on the official UEFA website on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Metropolitan Police said London “remains in a public health crisis” and urged people “not to gather in large numbers”.
