Phil Foden has been left out of England’s open training session just one day ahead of the Euro 2020 final.

The Manchester City star has sat out the session as the Three Lions’ official twitter account said that he has suffered a ‘minor knock’ and has been left out as a precaution.

All other 25 members of Gareth Southgate’s squad are taking part in the session, as they prepare for the country’s first major final in 55 years.

The 21-year-old made a positive impact off the bench during Wednesday’s 2-1 semi-final victory against Denmark.

Foden came on as an extra-time substitute as Harry Kane’s goal sent them to the final of the European Championships for the first time in the nation’s history.

He had started the opening two games of the tournament against Croatia and Scotland, though did not feature in their next three games against the Czech Republic, Germany and Ukraine.

Foden will hope to have recovered in time to be available and ready for action in Sunday’s final against Italy.

Having not started the last four games, it’s unlikely that Foden would start on Sunday, though substitutions could prove crucial depending on how the match goes.

Gareth Southgate address the media on Saturday evening ahead of the game, where he may well go into more detail about the extent of Foden’s problem and his readiness for the final.

Italy meanwhile have left their training base in Florence on Saturday morning, as they travel to London for the game which takes place at Wembley.
