Watch: Kalvin Phillips pulls off ‘touch of Euro 2020’ against Denmark

Kalvin Phillips performed an audacious piece of skill that might as well go down as the ‘touch of the tournament’ once it finishes.

The Leeds United star brought a long ball to a full stop and passed it to Mason Mount in one motion during the semi-final win against Denmark on Wednesday.

England booked their place in the final of the ongoing European Championship as Harry Kane converted an extra-time penalty to complete a 2-1 victory.

It was a highly controversial moment at Wembley after Raheem Sterling was brought down inside the Danish box.

Though, there wasn’t anything controversial about Kalvin Phillips’ performance as he ran a beastly 15 km during a 120-minute outing for his country.

The Leeds United midfielder was slightly overawed by the occasion during the first half an hour but came into his own as the game progressed and stamped his authority in the second -half and the extra time that followed.

Besides his tireless display, the Whites man also pulled off an exquisite pass when he recycled possession back for his team with a magical touch.

Intentional or not, this touch from Phillips when it dropped from the sky perhaps isn’t getting enough credit.
