Peter Crouch Deletes Tweet About Phil Foden And Neymar After Manchester City Beat PSG In Champions League

Peter Crouch deleted a tweet about Phil Foden and Neymar after Manchester City came from behind to beat Paris Saint-Germain.

Though Foden wasn't able to continue his excellent run of scoring in the Champions League, he again impressed on the biggest stage as his boyhood club recorded a huge semi-final first leg win.

Opposite him was Neymar and the world's most expensive player was utterly mesmeric as per usual, even in defeat.

Former England star Crouch took to Twitter to ask his followers who they'd rather have out of Foden and Neymar, writing, "Foden or Neymar as it stands now? Asking for a mate."

It may well have been in jest but the tweet was met with such a furious reaction that Crouch, always good value on social media, ended up deleting it.


Foden has 14 goals in all competitions this term, including two winners against Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16.

And Crouch has loved what he's seen from the youngster in the big moments this term.

"He's 20 years old and he has absolutely no fear whatsoever," Crouch told BT Sport earlier this month.

"Man City fans can relate to him, he's a mainstay in the team and that's what fans want to see. He's been fabulous this season."

Marquinhos put PSG 1-0 up early on with a header from an Angel Di Maria corner, but City completely turned the game on its head with a dominant second half display.

Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez both struck to give City an advantage going into the second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

Last year's finalists PSG will be without Idrissa Gueye after he was sent off for a horrific challenge on Ilkay Gundogan.
