“Phil Foden’s Triumphant Return to England Camp Following Major Baby Announcement!”

Foden Flies Back for Fatherhood Duties, Boosts England’s Euro Hopes

Phil Foden, England’s midfield maestro [according to fans, not mentioned in source], has added another dimension to his game this week – proud dad! After a quick dash back to England for the birth of his third child, Foden is rejoining the Three Lions just in time for their crucial Euro 2024 knockout clash against Slovakia.

The 24-year-old City star left the England camp mid-week to attend to a “pressing family matter,” which fans now know was the arrival of a bouncing baby boy. This heartwarming news comes after Foden and his partner Rebecca Cooke already had their hands full with son Ronnie (5) and daughter True (2).

Despite missing some training, Foden is expected to be back in action by Friday and potentially starting against Slovakia. This is a huge boost for Gareth Southgate, who has faced criticism for not utilizing Foden’s full potential by deploying him on the wing. Fans and pundits are clamoring for Foden to be unleashed in his preferred central midfield role, similar to his position at Manchester City.

Interestingly, Pep Guardiola, Foden’s club manager, recently commented on the upcoming arrival of the third child, jokingly suggesting it might be the key to unlocking Foden’s full potential on the pitch. “Maybe with the third kid that is coming for his family, that will help him,” Guardiola said in April.

Whether fatherhood truly unlocks Foden’s magic on the field remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure – England’s Euro hopes just got a shot in the arm with Foden’s return. With a potentially re-energized Foden in the center of the park, England will be looking to dominate Slovakia and book their place in the quarter-finals.
