So no blame levied at Foden for his role in it then🙄? He was play acting, we blame foreign clubs for that, but when English teams do it pundits gloss over it. They are in added time, it wasn't even a yellow card tackle, Foden rolls off the pitch, then back onto it🤔#ATMMCI

Brilliant tackle followed by blatant cheating from a English player, but let’s not focus on that, hey?

The fight wouldn't of started if Foden doesn't roll back onto the pitch but I guess that didn't get mentioned 🤨

What an absolute nightmare that Foden can roll about like that and no one sees anything out of the ordinary

Pahaha, its almost heartwarming to see atletico being played at their own game. Time wasting, rolling around, feigning injury, you just cant make this up ahahaha. They deserve it.

What do you make of it? Is this the year that Manchester City finally life the Champions League trophy? There’s no about that they are going to come very close to it.
