England and Tottenham defender Kieran Trippier will be awarded the freedom of Bury, his hometown, after his fantastic World Cup performance, as reported by the Guardian.

The Tottenham star scored in the semi-final against Croatia but could not help the English reach the final of the World Cup.

Trippier, however, was one of the best players in the tournament and certainly, one of the best English players under Gareth Southgate, and the 27-year-old will be awarded for the same as stated by Rishi Shori, the leader of the Bury council.

Shori stated that reaching the semi-final was an incredible achievement for the side and had brought a lot of joy to the fans too.

The Bury council member also added that Trippier deserved to be acknowledged.

“Kieran himself was outstanding, scoring a penalty in the shootout with Colombia and of course that unforgettable free kick against Croatia. He is now only third Englishman to have scored in a World Cup semi and certainly the first from Bury.

“He deserves to be acknowledged. He is a huge role model to younger people and hopefully can inspire the next generation of footballers in Bury.”

A lot of our fans will expect Trippier to carry the same kind of form for Tottenham next season as we look to win some trophies under Mauricio Pochettino.

Trippier has certainly improved a lot for club and country and it did come as a bit of a surprise seeing how good he was at creating chances for England in Russia.
