Roy Keane Compares England Star To Tom Brady After Andorra Performance

Roy Keane Compares England Star To Tom Brady After Andorra Performance

Phil Foden has been on fire in recent weeks, with the Manchester City player among the top performers in the Premier League this season.

His showing against Liverpool last weekend was immense, scoring one goal and setting up another in the 2-2 draw at Anfield. It was just the latest in a long string of brilliant showings.

The 21-year old was at it again this evening, although admittedly against lesser opposition in the form of Andorra.

Foden started in midfield for the game, pulling all the strings in the first half as Gareth Southgate's side took a 2-0 lead into the interval. His halftime highlight reel on ITV even led Roy Keane to compare him to NFL legend Tom Brady.

I love my American football, and he is like a top quarterback, like Tom Brady.

Heโ€™s just picking people out, heโ€™s got runners, wide-receivers, and heโ€™s making it look so easy.

Roy Keane being a big NFL fan is the revelation we needed tonight.

Jermain Defoe was also hugely impressed with his performance, saying the way he had approached breaking down Andorra's low block was a real sign of his class.

When you play against teams that play with a low block it's quite difficult to go through, so sometimes you've got to go around or over. That's what we've done.

He's sort of dropped into a fullback position and he's playing these passes like a Kevin De Bruyne tonight.

His range of passing tonight has been unbelievable.

This was not the first occasion that Keane has been impressed with Foden, praising him for his performance at Anfield last week.

Foden will be a key man for both Manchester City and England in the years ahead, with the player only likely to improve when you consider his age.

That is a scary prospect for the rest of the Premier League.
