Ex-Chelsea Star Baffled By Gareth Southgate Refusing To Introduce Man City Star Against USA

Former Chelsea star Craig Burley was baffled by Gareth Southgate's decision to not introduce Phil Foden during England's goalless draw against the USA in the FIFA World Cup.

Southgate named an unchanged lineup for his team from the 6-2 win against Iran. However, with the game at a stalemate, Southgate decided to bring on Liverpool's Jordan Henderson.

Many were left scratching their heads at the decision, as they believe Phil Foden would have been a much better fit at that point in time.

Burley, the former Chelsea star, shared that opinion as well, as he tweeted out during the clash:

"Has Foden been seen in a Qatari nightclub or something."

Gareth Southgate's team currently have four points from their first two games in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They will take the field next on November 29 for their penultimate group game against Wales.
