Phil Foden Withdraws from England Squad Due to Appendicitis Surgery

Man­ches­ter City mid­field­er Phil Foden will not be join­ing the Eng­land squad for the Euro 2024 qual­i­fiers against Ukraine after under­go­ing surgery for acute appen­dici­tis, accord­ing to an announce­ment by the Pre­mier League club on Sunday.

Foden, who is 22 years old, under­went surgery after play­ing 12 min­utes in Eng­land’s 2–1 vic­to­ry over Italy ear­li­er this week. It is unclear at this stage how long he will remain unavail­able, and he will not be fit for City’s home game against Liv­er­pool in the Pre­mier League this weekend.

City said in a state­ment that Foden’s avail­abil­i­ty for future games remains uncer­tain. The Pre­mier League run­ners-up will host Liv­er­pool on Sat­ur­day, while Eng­land will play Ukraine at Wem­b­ley on Sunday.

This is a set­back for both City and Eng­land, as Foden has been in fine form for his club this sea­son and was expect­ed to play a key role in Eng­land’s upcom­ing fix­tures. How­ev­er, his health and recov­ery are the top pri­or­i­ty, and every­one will be hop­ing for a swift and suc­cess­ful recov­ery for Foden.
