Euro 2020: Roy Keane names two outstanding players in England squad

Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, has identified Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice as the two excellent players in the England squad.

Both Rice and Phillips were impressive for England in their Euro 2020 opener against Croatia at the weekend.

“I thought it was a very good performance by England,” Keane told ITV.

“Very mature, how they managed the game and they mixed their game up well – good short passes then stretching Croatia.

“What they did which was vital was winning the midfield battle. If you win the midfield battle, it gives you a foothold to win football matches. Phillips and Rice were excellent. A very good day for England,” he said.

England’s next game is against Scotland on Friday.
