Phil Foden and Cole Palmer came through the ranks at Manchester City, but it was Foden who was first to break through.

Palmer had to find his way out of the Etihad Stadium to stand a chance, and has now become a top player for Chelsea.

Foden has revealed he has been close to Cole Palmer during their time in the England squad at the Euros, and can’t wait to see the Chelsea man in action.

Foden said: “Me and Cole have been hanging out quite a lot on camp.

“We’ve been going to the sauna and steam [room], playing a bit of paddle. Someone I know really well from my club. He’s a close friend.

“I’ve been training with them for many years at City. I know his talent and how good he is. He can only get better.

“He’s someone that I can see can have a big effect on the tournament when he gets his opportunity so looking forward to it.”
