On top, Owen argued that it is a matter of time for the youngster before they hit Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haalands’s level.
“They’re going to get there, Mount is a phenomenal player – but Foden can be one of the best players England has ever seen,” Owen argued.

“Yeah, it’s horses for courses. Man City are the best team in Europe. I have no doubt about that,” the former Manchester United forward said.

“Talking selfishly about England players going to that expectation of winning a tournament. The Champions League is a dream final for us now. Hopefully, we can get everyone out to Istanbul,” he added.
