England fans have raved about the performance of Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker in their match against Wales.
England ran out 2-1 winners over Chris Coleman’s side earlier today, in a dramatic contest.
The Three Lions had fallen behind when Gareth Bale scored a free-kick, but they fought back in the second half.
A goal from Jamie Vardy got Roy Hodgson’s men back into the game, before Daniel Sturridge netted a last minute winner.
Vardy and Sturridge stole the headlines, but Walker’s performance also took great acclaim.
The Spurs right-back was a constant menace going forward, and his effort was appreciated by England fans on Twitter.

Kyle walker was the best player on the pitch— Bell (@james_bell313) June 16, 2016
Walker seems to have established his place as England’s first choice right-back ahead of Nathaniel Clyne now.
The 26-year-old has arguably been England’s player of the tournament so far, after putting in superb displays against both Wales and Russia.
England’s next match comes against Slovakia on Monday evening, where a draw will be enough to put them into the knockout stages.
