Man City whiz Phil Foden is England’s ‘Tom Brady’ thanks to his phenomenal passing skills, says United legend Roy Keane

MANCHESTER CITY star Phil Foden is England's 'Tom Brady', according to United legend Roy Keane.

The Three Lions starlet put in a performance sprinkled with stardust in a 5-0 win over minnows Andorra.

Dropping into deep midfield positions, the 21-year-old showed off his impressive passing range, sending Jadon Sancho in behind in the build-up to Ben Chilwell's goal – before conjuring a stunning assist for Bukayo Saka's.

Keane likened Foden's passing ability to that of NFL superstar quarterback Tom Brady – winner of six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and another with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Irishman, 50, told ITV viewers: "I love my American football, and he is like a top quarterback, like Tom Brady.

"He’s just picking people out, he’s got runners, wide receivers, and he’s making it look so easy."

Fellow pundit Ian Wright added: "I love it, I love watching where's he playing in that two with James Ward-Prowse, who's also doing really well.

"When you've got someone of this calibre, in these kinds of areas… with that quality, it's very easy for him.


"This is what I'm quite pleased about with Gareth [Southgate], playing someone like Phil Foden in that position because, get another attacker on the pitch, get them on.

"Because you've got someone in that pivot two who's got the ability of making passes like that [in the build-up to Chilwell's goal]."

Rangers star Jermain Defoe added: "He's dropped into like a full-back position, playing these passes like a Kevin De Bruyne tonight.

"His range of passing tonight's been unbelievable."
