Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher has cheekily labelled Manchester City star Phil Foden as “a joke”.

Both players have been selected in England’s 26-man World Cup, having played together at youth level for England.

Speaking to JD Sports’ YouTube channel, Gallagher said about Foden: “He’s a joke! Playing with him at England [youth level] was special, what he could do with the ball, you knew he was going to be a top player. It was easy for him, very natural, and you just knew he was going to be world class”
