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

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

“We're really pleased with what Kalvin has done. We were going to pick him last March when he was in the Championship. He came in in August before he had played in the Premier League.

“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.”
