Premier League legend Wayne Rooney believes Manchester City’s flying star Foden will be England’s talisman through consistency.
Foden’s climatic moment as City, England and the Premier League’s special talents shone last weekend as he inspired his team to a 4-1 demolition of Liverpool at Anfield.
The results, which was City’s first win at Liverpool in 17 years, left City with five points clear at the summit of the league and 10 points ahead of Liverpool in fifth place.
The 20-year-old Foden laid an assist for Ilkay Gundogan’s second goal before he finished a fabulous fourth.
“I think [my advice] for Phil Foden is to keep doing what he’s doing,” Rooney said via Goal.
“I think he has been one of the best players in the league this season. Guardiola has managed him really well.
“I spoke to him a couple of times and you could see he is a very level-headed lad. So, to keep doing what he’s doing. He’s entertaining to watch, great to watch.
“I think there’s a few players, not just him, [such as] Jack Grealish who bring something different to the national team. They have to be in the squad for the Euros and arguably have to play. They are that good.
“He’s scoring, he’s assisting and hopefully he can carry that form on with the national team,” concluded the England and Man United legend.
Coming up next for Foden and Man City is the visit of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
