Kyle Walker

Tottenham’s Kyle Walker returned to the England starting XI yesterday, whilst Phil Jones of Manchester United also played.

England ended their qualifying campaign for Euro 2016 with a perfect 10 record, going the entire campaign winning every game.

The final game was on Monday evening, with a 3-0 victory over Lithuania coming courtesy of a much changed side, with one player back in action for the Three Lions for the first time since March - Kyle Walker.

Walker had found himself out of Roy Hodgson’s squad due to a mixture of injury and poor form, whilst Nathaniel Clyne has taken the opportunity to cement the starting right-back role as his own.

However, the Tottenham man was back in the squad for the recent international break, staying on the bench for the game against Estonia, and then playing the full 90 minutes in the victory over Lithuania - registering an assist.

Following the game, Walker took to Twitter to show his delight at returning to the international fold and making his 12th appearance for the Three Lions.

Manchester United’s Phil Jones also took to Twitter after the game, praising his teammates for managing to end the qualifying campaign with their 10 out of 10 record.
