Both Raheem Sterling and Kalvin Phillips raised quite a few eyebrows with their selection before the game. But it was the two controversial names who stepped up massively as England put one foot into the knockout stages with a 1-0 win against Croatia.
The Gareth Southgate-led side scored in the second half as Marcelo Bielsa mentee Kalvin Phillips went on a vicious run and served a delicious pass for the Manchester City winger to score a goal past Dominik Livakovic.
The Leeds United midfielder covered every blade of grass in what was a terrific outing on his debut in a major tournament and eventually made the decisive run from midfield that broke down Croatia’s defensive line.
