Jack Grealish Makes Champions League Final Joke To Jordan Henderson In Front Of Phil Foden

Jack Grealish took the perfect opportunity to make a joke about the Champions League final to Jordan Henderson, and Phil Foden's reaction is priceless.

It's only been two and a half weeks since the end of the club season, with Chelsea beating Manchester City in an all-English Champions League final in Porto.

The City players didn't have too long to dwell on the game as they were off to their national teams soon after, with the English cohort having to meet up with some of the Chelsea side who beat them.

While all eyes are now on the Euros, it hasn't stopped Grealish taking a little dig at his younger Three Lions teammate Foden.

In conversation with Henderson, the Aston Villa forward asked about wearing suits to the final and then joked "It's annoying when they try and change it up for a final and you get beat," with Foden in earshot.

The 21-year-old's response is absolutely brilliant in the background as he sits with his mouth wide open before looking away.

Of course, City really did 'try and change it up' in the final, with Pep Guardiola deciding to go for a different set up against Thomas Tuchel's side.

The Chelsea boss, who only joined the Blues in January, had beaten City twice earlier in the season so Guardiola dropped both Fernandinho and Rodri, played top scorer Ilkay Gundogan in defensive midfield and brought in Raheem Sterling, who hadn't played much in the latter part of the season.

While Sterling may not have enjoyed the end of his domestic season, he's already enjoying himself at the Euros, having scored the winner in England's opener against Croatia last weekend.

Attention for the Three Lions players now turns to Friday's game against the 'auld enemy' Scotland, and the spotlight is once again on Foden.

The youngster had his hair coloured in a similar fashion to Paul Gascoigne's famous Euro 1996 cut and it also happens to have just been the 25th anniversary of Gazza's famous goal at that tournament vs Scotland.

Foden has been compared to the former Tottenham Hotspur player but the 54-year-old isn't too sure, claiming he was better than the youngster, even when he played drunk.

At least he can get his medal collection out and show both Grealish and Gazza that he's not doing too badly, whether he's won the Champions League yet or not...
