3: International Career

When it comes to the country both of them share the same crest and sing the same anthem. The duo shares a good bond on the international stage, unlike their fans who spread hate towards each other. They even got together in a big controversy of bringing girls to their room in Iceland.

The incident is enough for us to believe that they are great friends in real life. They share a mutual respect for each other.

Phil Foden:  “Mason Greenwood, the best I’ve seen finishing wise. He’s both-footed in and around the box. He’s always going to score. He just knows when to finesse or lace it.”

However, Foden’s career for England has been more successful and he was called on for many big occasions. The Man Utd winger is comparatively young and with the amount of talents England possess it is difficult to make it in the starting XI.

Comparing the stats based on the data Foden is the winner in this category.

Who is the better player? Greenwood or Foden?

It’s almost the start of their career where one is more successful in winning trophies while the other edges him in terms of personal contributions. Comparing these two players at such a young age is difficult but with the given above stats we can see that Foden is slightly ahead of Greenwood. Although Greenwood is younger and has more time to achieve success.

The conversation and conclusion would be different in future. As of now, we have Foden as the winner.
