England have confirmed that Phil Foden has temporarily left their EURO 2024 camp.

Foden featured in all three group games for Gareth Southgate’s side including Tuesday’s stalemate with Slovenia.

But the Manchester City playmaker has flown home due to what the Football Association described as a ‘pressing family matter’.

It has since emerged that Foden is flying back to the UK to be present for the birth of his third child.

The Three Lions will discover the identity of their last-16 opponents after the group stages conclude on Wednesday evening.
