Foden's brilliant pass found Cancelo inside the box and the Portugal international did the rest to open the scoring.
"It was a great pass from Phil [Foden]," Cancelo told the club's website. "He is a fantastic player and it was a fantastic pass. I'm not surprised about his pass.
"He is a great talent and has a lot of skills. He is one of the best young players I've played with. He has a promising future and will be one of the best in the world.
"It was a very special night for all of us, for me as well. The most important thing is the team."
