On Wednesday night, Whites star Kalvin Phillips put in another strong performance in and England shirt, as the Three Lions beat Poland 2-1 at Wembley.

Discussing Phillips, England boss Gareth Southgate revealed: "I think everyone has still got to perform well between now and the end of the season in every position.

“Kalvin has been a great addition to the group. Super boy, great humility, very, very good player. Marcelo has done an excellent job in developing him as an individual but he has a lot of good qualities that are of his and his family's making and I know they'll be very proud.”
