Kalvin Phillips had a fine tournament for England at Euro 2020, even if he only finished with a runners-up medal.
His finest moment, however, might be this run to Bukayo Saka just after his decisive penalty miss against Italy in last night’s heart-breaking final at Wembley…
Kalvin Phillips covered 83km over the course of #EURO2020. More than anyone except Jorginho. He's had a superb tournament, but I think finding the energy and compassion to run to console Bukayo Saka here was his best contribution of allpic.twitter.com/3mVgDBzBLi Vid from @Likeith8

It’s a lonely place missing such a big penalty, but Phillips was the fastest to make sure someone was there to comfort Saka after his effort was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.
A top player and a class act. Bravo, Kalvin.
