Leeds United star Patrick Bamford has spoken out on Kalvin Phillips after he was named in England’s 26-man squad for the Euro 2020.
Phillips has been having an impressive season with Leeds. He made 31 appearances this season in which he scored one goal and provided three assists.
Gareth Southgate named his final squad for the campaign on Tuesday and the Leeds midfielder was named in the squad.
Bamford exclusively told Sky Sports News: “Every time he goes out there, he gives 100 per cent.
“I’ve seen the way that he’s grown as a player and he’s turned into one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League.
“Jordan Henderson and Declan Rice are top players, which shows the strength, but I think that Kalvin can definitely offer something special to that England squad.
“Nothing really fazes him to be honest. He’s a really laid-back kind of lad, in terms of not letting the pressure get too much for him. But when it’s game time, you’re not taking him out the zone.”
