Former Manchester City right back praises Phil Foden and says that he totally deserved another chance.

Phil Foden

and Mason

Greenwood

got kicked out of the National team squad because of breaching the Coronavirus protocols. They were not in the

England

national team's list after the incident and it looked like

Gareth Southgate

, the England boss, wanted to punish them.

However

Foden

called up for the national team again unlike

Greenwood

.

Micah Richards

, former

Manchester City

player believes that the 20 years old midfielder deserved this second chance.

“Every player has got their own journey. They have to learn from their own mistakes," he said on Sky Sports.

“The best way to do right is to do well on the pitch, and he does that, time and time again. He's been recalled to the

England

squad and he fully deserves it. 

“In England we always talk about how we can't retain the ball, we need all these technical players, and then when they come around, they don't play and don't get a chance.I'm glad he's in the squad because he's a top player.

“The important thing for Foden now, like any young player, is to play regularly.

“Obviously he's had one or two opportunities over the last year or two.”
