England and Manchester City star Phil Foden has been forced to pull out of the Three Lions’ Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine.
The winger suffered an acute appendicitis which has ruled him out of the Wembley game having already gone under the knife.
The hope was the Three Lions star, who scored for his country at Qatar 2022, would feature on Sunday having trained in the build-up but felt unwell and has had to miss the qualifier.
But the Man City ace won’t be available for the fixture, handing Gareth Southgate another blow with Luke Shaw also unavailable following his red card in the 2-1 win over Italy.
Foden’s absence will also be worrying news for Pep Guardiola and Man City’s Premier League title run in, as well as their Champions League hopes, with him likely to miss the quarter-finals.
