Manchester City youngster Phil Foden bagged a brace as England thrashed Iceland 4-0 on Wednesday night’s UEFA Nations League’s match.
Gareth Southgate’s men bounced back from the Belgium heartbreak that eliminated the from this year’s Nations League finals with the comfortable win against ten-man Iceland at Wembley.
The Three Lions began the rout through a 20th-minute goal form West Ham’s Declan Rice after an assist form City star, Foden.
Captain Harry Kane turned provider four minutes later as he set up Chelsea youngster, Mason Mount who made it 2-0 for the home side.
The Icelanders were reduced to 10-men in the 54th minute when Birkir Már Sævarsson picked up a second yellow card for a foul on Arsenal youngster, Bukayo Saka.
Speaking after the game, coach Southgate said: “For the last three days their mentality has been outstanding. Whenever you play for England there is something to play for. We’re trying to build and improve all the time. Our football was good to watch and for the young ones to get the goals was special.
“Most of our squad will peak in three to five years time. We think it’s worth investing the time in them. We’re still working on the balance of profiles of players for the system.
“It was good to see Bukayo again, he has had three excellent performances this week, especially for someone so young. It was good to see Mason in that central area again.
“Our attacking play was good, right from the back they built so well. [Some young players] are still growing physically, they’re still light. Wonderful technicians but they can get overpowered and you play Portugal or France and it’s land of the giants and you have to cope with that.
They’re going to have another five months with their clubs where they’ll play big games and learn even more. I’m really pleased for Foden, he’s such an exciting player.”
