England and Spurs fullback Kyle Walker has revealed to the Tottenham website that he is relishing the prospect of coming up against fellow White Hart Lane defender Ben Davies in Thursday's match against Wales.

It's a must win match for the Three Lions, after the disappointing last minute draw with Russia on Saturday, while Wales impressed in their win over Slovakia.

In fact, it was a result that may not have been possible without Davies' sensational goal line clearance early in the first half. But Tottenham's first choice right back doesn't need to be told how good the former Swansea man is.

"Ben's a great player," Walker told the Spurs website. "I train with him day in day out.

"He's gonna be right up for it and so are we. Its a nation derby and its gonna be an exciting one.

"They've got some fantastic players but they also need to be careful of us because we have some dangerous players in attacking areas."

Though Danny Rose wrestled the first choice left back slot from Davies fairly early in the season, the Welshman saw plenty of game time in the cups and coupled with an improvement in form when he did feature compared to his first season at White Hart Lane, has found himself an important squad member under Mauricio Pochettino. For Wales, he has found himself on the left side of a three man central defence.

While Davies made 27 appearances for Spurs last season, Walker convincingly batted away the challenge from new arrival Kieran Trippier, taking to the field 35 times as he recorded his best season in several years.

That form has seen the 26-year-old claim the England right back slot, and enable the prospect of two Tottenham full backs coming up against each other in a high profile international tournament.
