“Foden is very very special”, Rice declared on Twitter.
With his assist, Foden also became the first Man City player to notch more than ten goals and assists this season.
The so-called ‘Stockport Iniesta’ is playing himself into a starting spot at Euro 2020 – especially as he is currently keeping Raheem Sterling out of City’s XI.
Former Man City winger Trevor Sinclair, like the rest of us, was amazed by that performance.
He told talkSPORT on commentary: “I realised what Man City had done part way through that second half. Their game management was superb.
“By the middle of the second half, they were so confident they were going to keep clean sheets that they started setting traps, giving PSG extra bodies and then on the counter attack as we saw with Phil Foden showing incredible maturity.
“Once they get that counter attacking opportunity they go like lightening and they end up with goals.
“That’s where Mahrez’s second goal came from. They let PSG get wrong side of them and then as soon as the ball was turned over, attacking them with serious pace.
“Phil Foden’s maturity this season and in this game shone. An incredible performance by everyone involved.”
Man United icon Rio Ferdinand also lavished praise on Foden following the victory, declaring him the ‘best young player’ in world football when speaking to BT Sport.
“I would say Phil Foden is the best young player in the world right now,” he said.
