Phil Foden says winning the European Championships this weekend ‘would definitely change all our lives’ as he eyes victory for England in the final over Spain.

Foden, alongside Kyle Walker and John Stones, comes up against City teammate Rodrigo in an enthralling 20:00 (UK) clash at Olympiastadion in Berlin on Sunday.

Foden is aware of the huge quality of the opponents but stresses that Gareth Southgate’s men have their own attributes as they aim for the first tournament success since the 1966 World Cup.

“We believe in our ability,” said Foden after helping the Three Lions book their spot in the final.

“We know Spain is a fantastic team with the way they keep the ball but we also know our strengths.

“So I am looking forward to it and it would definitely change all our lives for sure.

“It means everything. It feels like it’s going to be the biggest game of my career. As you can see from the smile on my face, I’m just looking forward to it.”

England made it through to the showpiece on Sunday courtesy of a 2-1 semi-final victory over the Netherlands on Wednesday, Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa scoring a last-gasp winner with full-time approaching.

Foden was in scintillating form in Dortmund, pulling the strings in the middle of the park and going ever so close with an effort that was cleared off the line and another which struck the outside of the post.

Our 24-year-old lynchpin was thrilled with his performance.

“I was a little bit unlucky. I had a few close chances. But the main thing is the team won and I feel this game was my best in an England shirt. I am delighted,” he added.

“I feel in the last two games there have been improvements. I feel like the position is helping me as well in getting on the ball and getting in dangerous areas.

“I was enjoying it out there, picking up space and looked more like myself, like I do for City, getting it on the edge of the box and getting shots away.”
