Phil Foden ‘tried to meet another woman while on England duty’ before scandal

Phil Foden allegedly tried to meet another woman while on England duty a year ago.

Foden was sent home from Iceland, where he played for the Three Lions, after he and Mason Greenwood invited women to their hotel room, breaking Covid rules.

Make-up artist Lucy Jones has now claimed to The Sun that Foden tried meeting up with her last September while he was with the England Under-21s in Turkey.

Jones told The Sun: “People need to know that wasn’t a one-off and what he’s like.

"He was trying to do the same thing a year ago when he was messaging me in his England hotel.”

Jones claims that Foden sent saucy Snapchat messages and reportedly said on the picture sharing app: “I can’t wait to get a hotel with you”.

The Manchester City ace, 20, has a young son with reportedly long-term girlfriend Rebecca Cooke.

Though Jones claims she arranged to go for dinner with Foden before backing out when she discovered he had a son and partner.

She added: “He was probably messaging me for about two weeks before I worked out he had a girlfriend.”

Jones adds that she sent Foden pictures while he called her “gorgeous” before she called the meet off.

Jones has now reportedly had a baby with a new partner while Foden apologised for his actions in Iceland.

In a statement on social media, the midfielder wrote: “Following the story which has emerged today regarding my actions in Iceland, I want to make a full apology.

“I apologise to Gareth Southgate, to my England teammates, to the staff, supporters, and also to my club and my family.

“When I was called up by Gareth for these games, my first reaction was that of immense pride.

“To pull on that shirt for the senior team in my England debut was an incredible privilege.

“I am a young player with a lot to learn, but I am aware of the huge responsibility I have in representing Manchester City and England at this level.
