England midfielder Phil Foden has temporarily departed from England’s Euro 2024 camp in Germany to attend to a “pressing family matter,” as confirmed by the English Football Association on Tuesday.

His availability for the upcoming last 16 game on Sunday remains uncertain, with the 24-year-old’s absence potentially impacting England’s gameplay.

Although England has fallen short of expectations in recent matches, their path in the tournament appears more favorable, with a chance to avoid formidable opponents like Germany, France, Spain, and Portugal until the final.

Furthermore, reports from the Daily Mail indicate that Foden has left the camp to be present for the birth of his third child with his childhood sweetheart, Rebecca. It is anticipated that he will rejoin the squad ahead of their next match on Sunday in the last 16 stage.
