Kenny Samson: Tottenham ace Kyle Walker couldn't do basic task all internationals should

Wembley England 2

Former Arsenal defender felt Tottenham's Kyle Walker

Former Arsenal defender Kenny Samson felt Kyle Walker should have done better at times for England against Holland.

Samson, a former England left-back who played at Euro 1988, criticised the Tottenham right-back's crossing in the 2-1 loss, with Walker failing to find a teammate with any of his deliveries.

England lost the game 2-1, although to Walker's credit he set up England's goal with a neat pass to Leicester's Jamie Vardy who scored from close range.

Samson hit out at Walker's crossing ability, specifically his failure to beat the first man, suggesting it is a basic trait all international footballers should be able to accomplish.

Samson also had a little pop at Danny Rose, who gave away a penalty with a second half handball.

The Tottenham duo were certainly tested by the Dutch in the second half as England slipped to a 2-1 defeat, and losing is not a habit either of the full-backs have been used to feeling this season.
