Phil Foden sat out England’s training session on the eve of the Euro 2020 final against Italy.

Manchester City midfielder Foden was absent due to a “minor knock”, with all other members of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man squad present.

Southgate will address the media later on Saturday, when he is expected to give an update on Foden’s condition.

The 21-year-old was named Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Young Player of the Year in 2020-21 after scoring 16 goals and supplying 10 assists in all competitions as City won the Premier League and retained the EFL Cup.

He began Euro 2020 on the right-hand side of England’s attack, hitting the post during the early stages of the opening 1-0 win over Croatia.

But Foden was substituted during the lacklustre 0-0 draw against Scotland and did not feature again until an impressive extra-time substitute appearance in the 2-1 semi-final victory versus Denmark.

He has created two chances for team-mates at the tournament and completed 87 per cent of his 71 passes in open play.

Bukayo Saka returned on the right flank to face Denmark after Jadon Sancho played in the 4-0 quarter-final thrashing of Ukraine, with the Arsenal winger favourite to retain his place.
