England youngsters Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood would not be travelling with the rest of their teammates to Denmark today after footage emerged of the pair bringing girls back to the team hotel in Iceland.
The pair made their senior international debuts in the win over Iceland on Saturday – but those accomplishments have now been overshadowed.
Players have been given strict guidelines to ensure Covid safety – and the images – published by Icelandic outlet DV – appears to show Foden and Greenwood disregard those protocols on Sunday.
The pair’s conduct in bringing girls back has also contravened the FA’s behavioural rules for players whilst on international duty.
In the short clip, Foden and Greenwood appear to be wearing their new England training wear and the players are now in hot water with management.
In an interview with DV, one of the girls in the Snapchat video allegedly filmed in the hotel room said: ‘We had no idea about these [Covid-19] rules, they never said we could not take pictures.’
Another girl claimed to have notified the England stars that the pictures were in circulation with a Snapchat message, but ‘they have not opened it’.
She also claimed to have been in a relationship ‘with one of the boys for a few days’, noting: ‘The only thing I can say is that I had been talking to one of them for a few days. I’m not going to say where.’
Foden has a two-year-old son and a long-term girlfriend, while United star Greenwood broke up with his model girlfriend back in May.
