'He's magic'; 'Sterling knows it': Some Leeds fans love latest news about Kalvin Phillips
Some Leeds United fans were reacting to the news Kalvin Phillips has won an England award.
What’s the story?
It was revealed yesterday the Whites ace has been crowned England Men’s Player of the Year.
The midfielder only made his international debut for the Three Lions in September 2020 during the win over Denmark.
However, he has already received 15 caps and was a mainstay during Euro 2020.
Phillips played all but 25 minutes of the tournament, starting every single game under Gareth Southgate.
He is yet to score for his country, but he did assist the winner in the opening group game versus Croatia.
It caps off a sensational rise for the Yorkshire native, who has gone from the Championship to the Premier League and then Euro 2020 in just two years.
Phillips award richly deserved
His Leeds form led him to England and now Phillips has received an award he thoroughly deserves.
It was his Leeds form that enabled him to get an England call-up in the first place.
Despite playing in the Championship, numerous reports were flying about regarding a call-up to the international scene. It is a sign of how well the star was playing in the second-tier of English football
The midfielder was sensational throughout Euro 2020; hence why he started every game.
His progression of the ball through the pitch made him a crucial player for Southgate.
Here is how some Leeds fans reacted to his award…
