Euro 2020: Kalvin Phillips

England midfielder Kalvin Phillips said that England needs to take more risks in their round of 16 ties at Euro 2020 against Germany. England was the lowest scoring side of the 16 remaining teams in the competition. They managed to score just two goals in their three group stage games and have lacked the cutting edge in the final third.

They did manage to top their group thanks to two 1-0 victories over Croatia and the Czech republic. Phillips revealed that he and his teammates need to overcome the fear of losing possession and giving the ball away.

“Be more confident when we’re on the ball maybe, take a few more risks – me personally as well,” Kalvin Phillips replied when asked what aspect do England needs to improve at Euro 2020. “I feel like once we do start scoring, I feel like we’ll get a few more as well. I’m new to the team so I don’t really want to be risking the ball too much and losing a little bit of confidence. But at the same time, I’m in a major tournament so I’ve got to show what I can do, and hopefully, I can do that in the next game.”

Phillips has enjoyed a spectacular season with Leeds and has broken into the first team keeping the likes of more experienced players such as Jordan Henderson out of the team. He is the only English player to play every minute in the tournament so far.
