Phil Foden leaves England camp for birth of third child

England midfielder Phil Foden has left the three Lion’s Euro 2024 camp in Germany and returned to the UK for the birth of his third child.

In a statement the football association said the Manchester city player needed to go home because of a pressing family matter.

It is hoped Foden will be back with the squad by Sunday, the day of England’s last 16 match.

In April, Foden and his partner Rebecca Cooke announced on Instagram they were expecting a third child.

They have two children. Son Ronnie, five years-old, and a daughter True, who is two years old.

Foden, who has 37 caps, started all three of England’s group games at the tournament so far, including Tuesday’s draw against Slovenia.

Gareth Southgate’s side finished top of Group C with five points from three matches.

Their last 16 tie will take place in Gelsenkirchen, with their opponents to be confirmed after Wednesday’s final group games.
