It’s official… bleach-blonde Phil Foden is no more. The Manchester City midfielder has reverted to his old and trusted trim.
Foden set pulses racing across England over the summer after unveiling his new blonde hairdo ahead of Euro 2020, a nod to Three Lions legend Paul Gascoigne, who had a similar hairstyle at the iconic Euro 1996 tournament.
While Gareth Southgate’s men made a valiant effort in getting to the final and pushing eventual winners Italy all the way to a penalty shootout, it wasn’t to be for Foden and co.
Foden will be looking to have a strong season with Manchester City and go again for England at the World Cup in Qatar in the winter of next year, but he’ll be doing so with a more traditional hairstyle…

It marks the end of the blonde Foden era, which will provide fond memories for many England fans. You never know, perhaps he’ll revert to it ahead of next year’s major competition!
