Manager Gareth Southgate says that “trust needs to be rebuilt” between himself and Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood after the pair were sent home for breaching coronavirus quarantine guidelines in Iceland.
Manchester City midfielder Foden, 20, and Manchester United forward Greenwood, 18, both missed the goalless draw in Denmark and Southgate will help them “to rebuild” before they can be picked again.
“I’ve got a lot to think about, trust needs to be rebuilt and that takes time,” Southgate said.
“There has to be consequence to what happened and then we have to help them rebuild. That doesn’t mean you hold that against them forever.
“With the spotlight that is on them, what their families will be having to deal with, that’s an incredible ordeal. I have to try and help, with their clubs as well.
“The expectations and responsibilities that come when you wear the three lions have to be clear. It was a more than disappointing sideshow.”
