Phil Foden will have had a recent wound reopened at the England camp following Jordan Henderson’s chat with Jack Grealish over the Champions League.
The clip in question captured the forward, who has been linked with Manchester United by The Athletic, asking the Liverpool captain whether players had to wear suits to the competition’s final.
With the Reds midfielder confirming as much – the pair seemingly unaware of Manchester City star Phil Foden sitting behind them – the Aston Villa star joked about how frustrating it would be to get dressed up for a final you lose in.
The highly-rated 21-year-old appeared a little taken aback by his England teammate’s comments, which will have no doubt invited in recent memories of the player’s involvement in the Citizens’ 1-0 defeat to fellow Premier League outfit Chelsea in Porto.
Following England’s victory over Croatia in their group stage clash, Foden will no doubt be hoping he can turn away his own demons in Europe by helping Gareth Southgate’s men in their bid to continue their positive start to the European Championship.

Some Man Utd fans will no doubt enjoy the fact that a player they’ve been linked with ended up inadvertently trolling one of Man City’s star players.
The Red Devils could do with a signing like Grealish as an upgrade on struggling attacking players like Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Daniel James.
