Phil Foden happy to finally represent English colors

Phil Foden continued his impressive journey with England ranks. The FIFA U-17 World Cup Golden Ball winner made his belated debut for the Three Lions.

The 2-year-old was understandably pleased with achieving his childhood milestone. Foden shared that was a great moment for him and his family.

“It feels amazing, it’s a dream come true. Just to make me debut today is a big moment for me and my family,” Daily Mail quoted Foden.

Iceland could have ruined England’s festivities but failed to convert from the spot in the dying minutes. Foden admitted it was a tough match and was pleased to mark his debut with a win in national colors.

“It was a very difficult game. They defended well, we showed great character to stay in the game.

“To get the win is massive for the country. I didn’t feel the pressure, we all just try to play our football.

“Like I said before we showed great character and came through for the win. It’s a very high standard in training.

“I just try to learn as much as I can. I want to keep playing for my country, not just a one-off.

“Hopefully I can keep the shirt. We are going to go into the next game to make it two out of two and hopefully we can get the job done.”
