Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood has missed out on a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for their upcoming Nations League games.
The forward and Manchester City star Phil Foden were thrown out of the Three Lions squad in shame in September after being caught smuggling women into the team hotel in Reykjavik, just 24 hours after making their international debuts against Iceland.
The pair were flown home and forced to make grovelling apologies, leaving Southgate seething.
Pep Guardiola’s young star, though, has kept his place in the squad for upcoming games against Ireland, Belgium and Iceland.
Chelsea defender Reece James also has a place in the squad, despite picking up a red card for his rant at the referee following a 1-0 loss to Denmark last month.

There are few surprises in Southgate’s 29-man squad, with Covidiot Ben Chilwell earning a recall despite breaking lockdown rules ahead of the last international break.
Jordan Pickford has also kept his place in the squad, despite being dropped by Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti for last week’s game with Newcastle.
