Icelandic beauty had to keep checking Phil Foden's Instagram to remember his name and jokes he owes her £55 for hotel

THE Icelandic beauty who spent the night with Phil Foden revealed she had to keep checking his Instagram account while with him to remember his name.

Foden and Mason Greenwood were sent home in disgrace last week after the pair evaded hotel security to meet up with Nadia Gunnarsdottir, 20, and Lara Clausen, 19, at England's Reykjavik hotel – in a breach of strict Covid-19 protocols.

Lara Clausen – who admitted the Manchester City star left the hotel room VERY happy – confessed she struggled to remember his name.

Speaking alongside her cousin Nadia Gunnarsdottir with Icelandic podcast host Solvi Tryggvason, Lara said: "I really never could pronounce and remember his name.

"I sometimes needed to go back on Instagram because I had forgotten his name."

With the boys unable to leave the team hotel, Greenwood asked Nadia to book herself into the £55-a-night Radisson Blu hotel England were staying in for the Nations League game and snuck up to the seventh floor to meet her along with Foden.

They were later joined by Gunnarsdottir's cousin Lara, who also paid for a room and even brought jelly babies for the England duo at their request.

Lara explained how Manchester City star Foden had left their late-night rendezvous "very happy" but has yet to pay her back for her room despite promising to do so.

Nadia said: "It was never planned that Mason would pay for my room.

"Phil wanted Lara to come after I showed him Lara's Instagram profile.

"He immediately responded 'I'm going to pay for the room, she must come!'"

Lara added: "I spent £55 on the hotel room and gasoline.

"I do not get paid a million (Icelandic Krona, £5,500) a month!"

At which point Nadia said: "God, they get paid a lot more than a million each month."

Foden, 20, and Greenwood, 18, both issued apologies for their actions and were fined £1,360 for breaching Iceland's own coronavirus regulations.

Foden said: “Following the story which has emerged regarding my actions in Iceland, I want to make a full apology.

“I apologise to Gareth Southgate, to my England team-mates, to the staff, supporters, and also to my club and my family.

“On this occasion I made a poor decision and my behaviour didn’t meet the standards expected of me.

“I breached Covid-19 protocols put in place to protect myself and my England colleagues.

"I will learn a valuable lesson from this error in judgement and I wish Gareth and the team good luck this week."

Last night Foden was accused of attempting to meet up with another girl while on international duty with England under-21s last year.

Man United forward Greenwood issued an apology through his club which read: “Having now had the chance to reflect on what’s happened, I can only apologise to everyone for the embarrassment I have caused.

“It was irresponsible of me to break the Covid-19 protocols which are in place to protect players, staff and the public.

“In particular, I want to apologise to Gareth Southgate, for letting him down, when he had shown great trust in me.

“Playing for England was one of the proudest moments in my life and I only have myself to blame for this huge mistake.

“I promise my family, the fans, Manchester United and England that this is a lesson I will learn from.”
