England star Kalvin Phillips has revealed he told Ben White he was confident of making a big impact against Croatia.

The Leeds midfielder capped an impressive performance by laying on the winner for Raheem Sterling on Sunday.

He became good mates with White while the Albion defender was on loan at Elland Road.

Phillips said today: “It was weird. I had a mad feeling before the game that I was maybe going to score.

"I told Ben White I had that feeling and I came close to scoring but if I wasn't going to score, at least I set one up.


"Whenever I get a chance to be on the ball, I just think 'don't give it away'.

"Given I had a 94% pass accuracy, my team-mates helped me out a lot and that is how it happened."
