Euros 2021: Kalvin Phillips – You’re not having that!

Euros 2020 – Phillips – You’re not having that!

Looking back over work made during the summer – This was a picture that was a joy to do and a joy to watch – Kalvin Phillips is a passionate player, so determined to keep the ball no matter what the pressure.

I made this one from the match against Croatia, where he ‘announced’ his presence right from the start. The Croatian player was definitely not having the ball – it was Kalvin’s!

I love his style!

      So kind Mike, thank you! His approach reminds me a little of Norman Hunter, from years ago. Different era, same determination.

        Yes, I was a big fan of that Leeds team. Hunter, Jacki Charlton and Billy Bremner were notorious, but Johnny Giles was just as competitive. My favourite phrase regarding Norman ‘ bites yer legs’ Hunter, taken from a newspaper report, was that “He couldn’t tell flesh from leather!” Brilliant!
