On CentOS 7, PHP is still on version 5.4.16, though there are a number of community projects that provide more recent versions. In this case, we’ll use the packages from the IUS Project.

To add their repository, run:

  1. curl 'https://setup.ius.io/' -o setup-ius.sh
  2. sudo bash setup-ius.sh

Now, you can install the packages with:

  1. sudo yum install php70u-xml php70u-mbstring

Worked for me. I had to use php72u, though as I am on 7.2. Thanks!
