In his post, Phillips said that it is an “absolute honour and dream come true” for him to play for his country and that he will give it his all to make England proud.
He also included an image of himself wearing an England shirt in his post.
This tweet then grabbed a lot of attention from many Leeds supporters who were quick to share their messages to the midfielder.
So, what did these Leeds fans have to say in response to this latest post from Phillips about his England call-up?
“Buzzing for the Yorkshire Pirlo”
“Absolutely love this”
“Absolute legend!! #LUFC”
“Never in doubt. Fully deserved.”
“July 2019, Guiseley pre-season. 2 years on, England Squad Wow!”
Looking at the replies to this post, it’s clear to see that these Leeds fans are delighted to see Phillips being called up to the England squad for the Euros. It seems the confirmation of his selection for his country has not quite sunk in for some of these fans, who see Phillips as one of their own.
Taking into account how Phillips ended the 2020/21 Premier League season as one of Leeds’ highest-rated players with a decent overall rating of 7.01/10 according to WhoScored, it’s easy to see why he has been included in the squad and why these Leeds fans think it’s well deserved.
