England legend Peter Shilton claims that Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden have to be more aware of social media dangers and understand their responsibilities as professional footballers.
The England youngsters were axed from Gareth Southgate's squad after footage emerged of the pair bringing girls back to the team hotel in Iceland. Having made their senior international debuts together, the pair's accomplishments were quickly overshadowed.
Shilton, who represented England in three World Cups, says the youngsters will learn from this experience, while also admitting that he doesn't 'envy' the social traction of the 'modern-day footballer.'
