Kalvin Phillips hopeful of England call-up in Qatar

Kalvin Phillips has been on the sideline for two months.

The Englishman moved from Leeds United this summer and has been restricted to only three substitute appearances due to shoulder injury.

He is expected to start the game against Chelsea this midweek in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old recently spoke about his recovery from the shoulder injury.

Phillips told BBC Radio 5 Live: “The shoulder’s perfectly fine now. “I have gone through a seven-week process of recovering as fast as I possibly can for the World Cup. Everything is going great.

“I’ve obviously not done it for quite a long time now but I’ve kept my fitness up and I’d like to think I could play 90 minutes.”

He added: “I’m not too sure yet. I’m very hopeful that I can be involved. We will have to wait and see.

“[Following surgery] I spoke to Gareth and told him about my situation. I said I understood if he didn’t select me but he reassured me that ‘as long as you’re fit enough and you prove you’re progressing well, there’s always a chance you will be called up’.”
