Unfortunately for the young kid, injured Foden wasn’t even in City’s matchday squad, but that didn’t stop the kid from showing his admiration for his favorite player.

After Manchester City’s 2-1 victory over PSG, the England international Foden put out a plea on Twitter to find his young fan, Foden wrote- “Thanks for the support.. does anyone know this young fan??,” he wrote with a laughing emoji. ”

Current Ballon d’Or favorite Messi didn’t played his best game last night, as he barely had a kick all game against the Manchester based outfit, whom he could have joined a few seasons ago.
City made an incredible comeback last night from 0-1 down to win 2-1, French international Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring on the 50th minute mark for the Parisians after he nutmegged Ederson to put ball in the net, but soon after that a resurgent Raheem Sterling equalized for the cityzens as he poked home from close range, before Bernardo Silva’s cut back put substitute Gabriel Jesus in an incredible position to score the winner.
Both sides were already into the knockout stages before the game, but City secured top spot and – in theory – an easier draw for the next round.
