The 25-year-old had been playing well for England at the European Championship, and he had yet another good game tonight.

Phillips played one key pass, had a pass accuracy of 88.9%, took 30 touches, and made one interception.

A booking tonight would have seen Phillips miss the semi-final game against Denmark.

Moreover, England were cruising at that stage.

There was no point in keeping Phillips on the pitch and take the risk of the midfielder picking up a yellow card.

Leeds defender Ayling was following the game, and he sent a message to Phillips on Twitter when he got substituted.

Ayling urged his Leeds teammate to get his feet up and prepare for the semi-final against Denmark.
