Leeds United fans on Twitter have been calling for Kalvin Phillips to get a shot in the England squad after the latest international break came to an end.
The Three Lions had a successful period over the past week beating Montenegro 7-0 and triumphing 4-0 in their clash with Kosovo.

However, some pundits believe that there is one man who could further improve Gareth Southgate’s squad after Danny Higginbotham’s column in The Sun called for the Leeds United midfielder to be given a shot in the national team.
It’s hard to disagree with that view, Phillips has been immense in the Championship, and he’s been hailed as the best player in the division.
The Three Lions manager has previously shown reluctance to select players from the second-tier of English football, making remarks about Jack Grealish but United supporters are clearly hoping that the former Middlesbrough manager will change his policy on this occasion.
Here’s what the Elland Road faithful have been saying on social media…

Mills has a point about the step up. England have 4 friendlies before the Euros. Get him in the squad and give him a chance. He is playing at a huge club, so why not give him an opportunity?
