Phil Foden has revealed his new bleached haircut on social media and fans are comparing him to England legend Paul Gascoigne.
The Manchester City midfielder is looking to play a key role at Euro 2020 this summer after a strong domestic campaign.
Ahead of England’s first Group D game against Croatia on Sunday, the 21-year-old has decided to change up his look in a major way.
Foden’s barber posted the final results for fans on Instagram and everyone immediately made comparisons to ‘Gazza’ back at Euro 96.
Ironically, England faced Scotland at that tournament and Gascoigne scored THAT iconic volley.
Could Foden repeat that when the Three Lions square off with Scotland on June 18?
Fans are hoping he can inspire England in a similar way Gascoigne did all those years ago.
Wasn’t convinced on the Foden & Gazza comparisons, but now he’s dyed his hair I’m fully sold & it’s coming home! pic.twitter.com/sONL16MoR9

Just know I’m getting Foden on that back of my England shirt when the blonde hair drops. Time for this Scotland to catch the dentist chair fade as well.

Foden spoke to Football Daily last month and was asked about changing his haircut.
Presenter Joe Thomlinson quizzed the Premier League winner on his trim and he replied: “When I first came, I had longer hair and I change it to this for the last two seasons.
“I don’t know, I like it how it is at the moment! It’s just dead simple and easy to do. In the future I’ll probably have a different style but I don’t know what.”
When specifically asked about blonde hair, he said: “I could give it a go but I don’t know if it’d suit me! But I can give it a go if that’s what the people want.”
