Former Premier League striker Stan Collymore has named Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips as England’s best player throughout their Euro 2020 campaign.
The Lowdown: Phillips excels for England
The Three Lions were beaten on penalties by Italy in the final on Sunday night as their tournament ended in painful fashion at Wembley.
The Latest: Collymore hails Leeds hero
The 25-year-old’s performances were so good that Collymore felt he was England’s best player overall at the finals, taking to Twitter to hail Phillips as “My @England player of the tournament.”
Phillips started every game for Gareth Southgate’s side at Euro 2020, building an excellent relationship with Declan Rice in the middle of the park.
The Verdict: Deserved praised for Phillips
It is great that the rest of the country has been able to witness Phillips’ brilliance, with Leeds fans having grown accustomed to such performances week in week out.
He is a fantastic footballer who continues to go from strength to strength and he is likely to be a huge player for the Whites again next season based off the fine form he has shown for England this summer.
Alas, the more that Phillips plays like this, the harder it could become for Leeds to keep hold of him, but they must do all they can to keep him at Elland Road for many years to come.
