Phil Foden has been recognised in the latest edition of the Guinness World Records book.
Phil Foden was awarded with the youngest player to ever win the Premier League, at 17 years and 350 days. Sergio Agüero also took his place alongside Alan Shearer, with his hat-trick against Chelsea equalling the record total of 11.
Upon receiving the award, Foden said: “I’m over the moon with this. Didn’t really know until someone else told me! It’s nice to be recognised and cool to say I’ve got a world record.”
Foden appeared 13 times in the Premier League last season, scoring one goal, in a crucial home clash against Tottenham Hotspur. He’s only featured twice in the league this season but has featured in two Champions League games too. In the 2017/18 season, where he achieved the record, he appeared in his fifth game in City’s final game of the season, where they secured 100 points.
Sergio Agüero went from nine to 11 Premier League hat-tricks in the space of a week in February, scoring three in both home games against Arsenal and Chelsea.
