Phil Foden has temporarily left England's Euro 2024 camp to deal with a personal issue back in the UK, the Football Association has confirmed.

The Manchester City forward has been an ever-present for the Three Lions in Germany, starting every one of the Group C games, most recently the goalless draw with Slovenia on Tuesday.

In a short statement, the FA confirmed that Foden had flown back to the UK but did not indicate whether he would return to Germany before Gareth Southgate's side's last 16 game, which they will play on Sunday in Gelsenkirchen.

The statement read: "Phil Foden has temporarily left the England camp and returned to the UK for a pressing family matter."

Foden and his girlfriend are reportedly expecting their third child.
