From Germany's Robin Koch to North Macedonia’s Ezgjan Alioski, there’s a strong contingent of Elland Road talent set to take part in the competition, but by far the player who the majority of supporters will be most interested in is Kalvin Phillips.

The midfielder is part of Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and Whites teammate Tyler Roberts – who will be playing for Wales this summer – believes he can make a big impact.

“They have obviously been there from the start under Marcelo Bielsa like a lot of us but they have been playing for the last three seasons,” he told The Beautiful Game Podcast.

“For them to come in and kind of just handle the Premier League life the way that they have has just given everyone else that kind of security and safety as in we can all do this. It’s definitely been good for all of us.

“Obviously Kal is with England now and he has stepped up a lot.”

He added: “The way that Kalvin plays, I love it.

“If I want a CDM [central defensive midfielder] I want him holding it down and making big tackles and when he is getting on it he is just hitting diags.

“If I had a CDM I want him to play like that, so for me I would be starting him in any team really.”
