Thompson, who is just 19 years of age, was impressed with the West Brom defender’s performance for Northern Ireland against Ukraine on Thursday.
The 28-year-old former Manchester United man started the Euro 2016 Group C game at Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Lyon and played for the entire 90 minutes.
Northern Ireland won the match 2-0, thanks to goals from Gareth McAuley and Niall McGinn.
