Ally McCoist lavished praise on to Phil Foden for his sparkling showing for England in their 3-1 victory against Scotland on Tuesday night.

Commentating on Channel 4, the popular pundit gave his two cents on the Manchester City attacker’s performance against Steve Clarke’s side.

It’s safe to say that Ally McCoist was mesmerised by the Phil Foden show as England made light work of Scotland.

Branded as ‘unreal’ by Rio Ferdinand, the silky midfielder proved why he remains one of the best in the business with his exquisite passing, sublime technical ability and tantalising link-up play with Jude Bellingham and Marcus Rashford.

The 23-year-old even opened the scoring at Hampden Park, getting on the end of a pinpoint low cross from Kyle Walker to tap the ball past Angus Gunn.

“He just takes it completely differently to anybody on the pitch. He’s amazing the wee fella, he really is”, he said.

How can anyone doubt Phil Foden at this point?

Ally McCoist is spot on and for all the Phil Foden critics, his performance for England against Scotland was a reminder of his undeniable brilliance.

Unfortunately, several sceptics have questioned why the treble-winner perhaps is not the protagonist for Manchester City yet.

However, the same group are yet to have noticed the competition for places at City, especially in his natural position in midfield over the years and Pep Guardiola’s habit of constantly rotating his side.

Yet, Foden has managed to have one hell of a career so far, despite spending two full seasons out of position at left-wing and as a false nine as a part of one of the greatest teams of all time.

While last season, injuries and a settled XI meant the five-time Premier League winner’s progress was halted.

But when fit and played in a more central role, Phil Foden is unstoppable, as he proved against the Scots.
