Phil Foden is continuing to be monitored by England medics after testing positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with the Three Lions.

Foden missed the Nations League defeat to Hungary in Budapest on Saturday and will also be absent for Tuesday’s fixture against Germany in Munich.

While Gareth Southgate and his squad travelled directly from Budapest to Munich over the weekend, Foden has remained back in England as he recovers from the virus.

“Phil is still being monitored back home. It’s going to be a very individual thing post-Covid, you don’t know how everyone will react,” Southgate said in his press conference ahead of the Germany game.

After tomorrow night’s game, England round off their June internationals with further Nations League fixtures against Italy and Hungary at Molineux.

Foden could yet play a part against the European Champions on Saturday (June 11) or in the return fixture against Hungary on Tuesday, June 14.

Foden’s City teammate Raheem Sterling is “fine” and set to play a part against Germany, Southgate has revealed. The 27-year-old was an unused substitute against Hungary on Saturday.
