Kelly described Jordan Pickford as "faultless" in England's loss in the Euro 2020 final to Italy.
The coach wrote for evertonfc.com: "On a personal level, Jordan was superb in the final, as he has been throughout the tournament. He's really stepped up and been a shining light for his country.
"It wasn't just his penalty saves in the final, his performance throughout the 120 minutes was superb. He was faultless.
"He was calm, cool and controlled. He stood up and was counted on when the big moments happened. In terms of the penalties, you can do no more than he did as a goalkeeper, making two brilliant saves."
