Pep Guardiola supports Kalvin Phillips to be fit for the World Cup despite a shoulder injury

Kalvin Phillips may be fit for the World Cup even if he needs surgery on his injured shoulder, according to Pep Guardiola.

The Manchester City midfielder has pulled out of the England squad to face Italy and Germany due to his latest injury of a stop-start season.

But while Phillips waits to find out if he needs surgery, Guardiola has allayed fears that the former Leeds midfielder, who has 23 caps, will miss the tournament in Qatar.

England play their opening game of the World Cup against Iran on November 21 while Gareth Southgate has until October 21 to name his squad.

Guardiola said: “I’m not a doctor, but in a good way, of course, he can arrive [at] the World Cup. The doctor says the only solution right now is to do what we have to do. Maybe he’s got a problem with his shoulder again [he will] must be operated on in the next few days.”

Phillips started all seven of England’s games at Euro 2020 with Declan Rice as a midfield partner as they reached the final and were named their Player of the Year for the 2020-21 season.

However, he was limited to 13 minutes of football for City through injury and missed Saturday’s 3-0 win over Wolves.
