City ace targets more medals

18th June 2019, 04:17 by Michael Holland

Manchester City star Phil Foden is targeting more medals as England's under-21s prepare to get their Euro 2019 campaign underway.

The 19-year-old already has two Premier League and two Carabao Cup winners' medals to his name since breaking into the City squad and has now set his sights on a successful summer with England.

Foden won the Under-17 World Cup with the Young Lions two years ago - being named player of the tournament following a 5-2 comeback win over Spain.

The under-21s start their campaign against France today, and Foden is determined to win more silverware.

"It's all about winning the next thing, once you win one thing, you want to win the next thing," he said. "For me, I just love winning. Every game I go into I just want to win it. It's the excitement of winning.

"I keep them in a cabinet. It's getting full though. I might need a new one! Sometimes I walk past and just have a look and realise I've won a lot.

"The World Cup was the first, the biggest one I won and then I started winning trophies with City, cups and leagues. It's hard to pick one. Every single one is special to me.

"My first medal was probably with the Reddish Vulcans, winning a little tournament and getting a medal, I remember that. I was about eight or nine. It made me realise I want to win more and more."
