Foden scored twice in England's 5-2 victory over Spain in India, where he won the 'Golden Ball' award for the most valuable player in the tournament.
Diaz is another promising player who may also be given the opportunity to impress at the Etihad Stadium.
"Phil Foden is ready to start a game. Brahim as well, two young players," said Guardiola.
"I see them in training, in the World Cup, they are ready. They would not be training with us otherwise. The skills are there. The quality is there. We can help them with the speed [of the game]."
Guardiola faces a further selection headache, albeit a welcome one, as he must decide whether to start with Gabriel Jesus or Sergio Aguero in attack against the Dutch champions.
"Sergio is fit. Gabriel Jesus is fit. It is my toughest decision," added the Spaniard.
"There are a lot of games and they have to be ready to play well, even if it is from the bench."
