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

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.
