Trevor Sinclair has leapt to the defence of Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden after the pair broke quarantine rules in Iceland by bringing girls back to the team hotel.

Greenwood, 18, and Foden, 20, have been kicked out of the England squad by manager Gareth Southgate just two days after making their senior debuts and will return home instead of travelling with the rest of the squad to Denmark for Tuesday's Nations League clash. 

But while former England international Sinclair did say the young pair must 'learn and be better', the 47-year-old started his tweet on Monday by insisting 'boys will be boys.'

The pair made their senior international debuts in the win over Iceland on Saturday - but those accomplishments have now been overshadowed. 

Players have been given strict guidelines to ensure Covid safety and the images - published by Icelandic outlet DV - appears to show Foden and Greenwood disregard those protocols on Sunday.
