Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: 'Vincent Kompany still 10 days away'

28 October 2017

England face Spain in the Under-17 World Cup final on Saturday in Kolkata after Liverpool youngster Rhian Brewster made it back-to-back hat-tricks in the Three Lions' 3-1 semi-final triumph over Brazil.

Curtis Anderson (goalkeeper), Joel Latibeaudiere (defender) and Phil Foden (midfielder) have all featured as part of England's side which has reached the final of the U17 World Cup.

Despite being just 17 years of age, Foden is showing remarkable ability and it seems only a matter of time before he becomes a regular presence in the Manchester City first team fold.

His manager, famed for developing a golden generation at Barcelona, is suitably impressed. Maurizio Sarri's side are touted as potential candidates for the title this season as they remain unbeaten and three points ahead of Juventus, an idea Hysaj gives fuel to. With such an experience and flawless defensive skills, he surely is an asset for the club and who better than Pep to take the best use out of him.

"About their quality, it is up to us to help them develop".

The West Virginia Mountaineers are hosting the Oklahoma State Cowboys in college football action on Saturday afternoon. He's tossed only five interceptions in the process of averaging more than five touchdown passes per game.

"He reminds me all the time to work more, work harder, and think about what I'm not so good at". Joel came sometimes for training and helped us a lot but regularly Phil and Brahim (Diaz) help us a lot.

"We want to win the league, and that's why everyone is trying to be positive, to stay focused and to try to win every game". His performances made him the official Golden Ball victor of the U-17 World Cup, which recognises him as the tournament's best player.

Guardiola knows full well the tough task ahead of Foden and company but believes England can certainly hold their own.

"We are so happy for Joel, the goalkeeper [Anderson], and Phil", said Guardiola. "It is good, of course, for English football", he added. That is fantastic. Big congratulations to the team.

"We're thinking about Sassuolo [on Sunday] first and foremost; after we win, we'll think about City". "I think it will be an equal final".
