Manager Gareth Southgate has been able to regularly change his team, with a plethora of attacking talent at his disposal.
Paul Gascoigne sported the same hairdo when he lit up the Euros as an enigmatic midfielder in a previous generation.
The player of the tournament when England won the Under-17 World Cup in India in 2017, Foden is now set to be unleashed on a full international competition for the first time at the age of 21.
Foden had celebrated his 11th birthday by watching Barcelona defeat Manchester United 3-1 in the 2011 Champions League final.
He is sure, too, to play a big role for England at this summer's European Championship, having seemingly established himself in the preferred front three of his national team.
At 20 years and 220 days, he became the second-youngest player to score and assist in a Premier League game against Chelsea since Jermain Defoe in September 2002.
Sent home by Gareth Southgate in disgrace three months ago, Phil Foden is back in the England manager's affections again.
England's dominated what was a largely meaningless game in an empty Wembley Stadium, but didn't score again until Iceland was reduced to 10 men.
