@AidenWa1ker So used to England letting us down over the years but this time it's different, it hurts so much more. We will be back. Proud of them all & @Kalvinphillips you are the man!

@Garyphelan5 Player of the tournament , I don’t think he lost a ball or missed a tackle , has to be Kalvin Phillips #lufc

@leedsfannla @Kalvinphillips chin kid. What a tournament and what a performance. All the LUFC fam are proud of you!!!

@Spencer_DavidA Kalvin Phillips is a colossus #lufc

@antoniomunro_ Massive respect to Shaw, Mount, Kalvin Phillips for having a great performance throughout the tournament.

@Ken_DeMange Our @Kalvinphillips though, again grew with every passing minute, absolutely outstanding once he dropped back into his natural position. For every kid pretending to be Kalvin in the playground a month ago, there’ll be ten now. What a player. What a joy to call him our own at LUFC.

@BatesyV5 @Kalvinphillips you were absolutely sensational, every game you played. Player of the tournament for me. Done Leeds proud, and now your country. Magnificent. Enjoy your break now, you've earned it. #lufc

@MOTForever Well done @Kalvinphillips absolute Titan in the tournament. Now get yourself on a short break and then back to murderball. Drive #lufc up that Premier League.
