    Ben confronted his colleague, Phil

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Ben confronted his colleague, Phil, and called him a liar to his face.

    Re: Ben confronted his colleague, Phil

    The word "confronted" includes the idea that they are face to face, so I find the use of "to his face" somewhat redundant.

    Ben confronted his colleague, Phil, and called him a liar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
